Hi,
How are you? Gliosis usually refers to a process of scarring in the central nervous system resulting from proliferation of astrocytes in an injured or diseased part of the brain. It can occur after stroke, trauma, multiple sclerosis or other neurological issues. Lacunar infarct, on the other hand, are caused mainly by small-vessel disease occluding a small perforating artery. It is best that you discuss the result with your attending physician for proper evaluation. The medical history, symptoms present, are correlated with the results of the imaging studies. Take care and do keep us posted.
