Sometimes you need a complimentary MRA, using dye contrast media, which shows degeneration of vascular structures.

I did have the MRA with the MRI, both negative. Any others you know of?

My significant other (age 88) has been diagnosed with Chronic small vessel brain disease.  This was not a surprise to me, as I've been dealing with his memory loss, thinking difficulties, gait disturbances and balance problems for a couple of years. With the diagnosis, he has now asked me to leave as he doesn't want to put me in a situation of being his caregiver. I could probably talk him through this, however, he has started calling me a liar, and yet won't tell me what he thinks I lie about.  Is this the beginning of Alzheimers?
