Ichemia Brain MRI Results

I had buzzing in my right ear. Doctor ordered MRI of the brain. My results showed Flair axial images reveal  numerous ares of increased signal intensity in the periventricular and suborbital white matter. T-2weighted images reveal flow void in the major cerebral arteries. No other abnormal areas. Conclusion was possibly chronic ishemia as secondary to degenerative microangiopathy. Areas of demylination could also give this appearance.

My ear doctor asked if I had high BP. I have but it is controlled with low dose of lisinopril. No cholesterol problems. I would like to know if this means alzheimers or what to expect. Also what can be done to increas blood flow to the brain?  What can be done? Thanks for your help.

Dear Menzel,
Good that you have the basic query answered. But do let us know the result of lumbar puncture. Also your profile mentions about your profession as nurse and age 69. If it's true, then lets get the basic blood parameters checked ( basic blood haemogram and lipid profiles)
Hope am clear in my understanding about your age. Please let me know further details, of your blood tests.
Regards

Your brain blood flow is okey and kindly forget about this point, because the blood flow in our brains is strictly controlled by the Auto -regulatory system.
This system can never be disturbed (unless the patient complains of atherosclerisis = rigid vessels, mainly in aged people above age 62 h 65).
In your case demyelination can happen or start to be seen 2-3 months after viral or autoimmune reaction. It also appears in migraine patients.
To be on the safe side, kindly go for an analysis of the cerebrospinal fluid via a lumbar puncture.
