I AM A 58 YEAR OLD FEMALE WITH UNILATERAL TINNITUS FOR 3 MONTHS. I RECENTLY UNDERWENT AN MRA AND MRI OF THE BRAIN. MRA WAS NORMAL EXCEPT SHOWED MILD DEVELOPMENTAL ASYMMETRY ON THE A1 SEGMENT OF THE ANTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERIES. THE MRI SHOWED INCREASED T2 SIGNALS IN THE WHITE MATTER, 2 IN FRONTAL LOBES & 1 ON LEFT FRONTOTEMPORAL SUBCORTICAL REGION BEING NONSPECIFIC BUT SUGGESTIVE OF EARLY SMALL VESSEL OCCLUSIVE CHANGES. THESE TESTS WERE ORDERED AND NOT YET SEEN BY THE ENT. ARE THESE FINDINGS ABNORMAL AND DO THESE FINDINGS INDICATE THAT I SHOULD MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH A NEUROLOGIST?
