About This Community:

Dementia is a descriptive term for a collection of symptoms that can be caused by a number of disorders that affect the brain. While memory loss is a common symptom of dementia, memory loss by itself does not mean that a person has dementia. The purpose of the community is to share support and information with Dementia patients, their loved ones, and caregivers. Topics in the community include: causes, clinical trials, complications, family issues, living with Dementia, prognosis, research, surgery, treatments.

Is this really an advanced dementia diagnosis?

CT brain scan with these findings and impressions. We found that my sister had severe periodontal disease after this CT was taken.
Findings: There is no bleed, midline shift, nor mas effect. The ventricles and sulci are mildly proportionately dilated. Periventricular hyperdensities are noted. There is a 6.7 x 6.3 mm calcification along the right frontoparietal convexity. The visualized paranasal sinuses demonstrate minimal mucosal thickening of the ethmold sinuses. The mastoid air cells are clear.
Impression:
1 No bleed, midline shift, nor mass effect or fracture.
2 Dural calcification versus meningioma of the right frontoparietal convexity.
3 Mild atrophy with chronic small vessel ischemic changes.
4 Minimal ethmoid sinus disease.
