MRI Brain

Hi there,

I have had headaches for as long as I can remember ( 30 years). They (headaches) started after a few horse riding accidents and one motor vehicle accident.  After many failed attempts at finding the right answers, I had an MRI three days ago. I now have the results and as usual, the average person can't understand the terminology. I'm hoping someone can shed some light on this for me as I don't see my Neurologist for another two weeks. I won't give the whole report but I will put in part of the Conclusion.

'A small focus of periventricular hyperintensity  is located close to the right trigone, this would represent an area of nonspecific ischemic gliosis.' I have done some research online but I need a 'real human' to explain this to me. lol.

Can anyone explain this to me in layman's terms? I would really appreciate some input to stop me from getting too anxious about the whole thing.

Thanks in advance,
shrub0563 :+)

Hi there. Your MRI report says, there is an area of hyper intensity, which could be demyelination, around the lateral ventricle on the right. This could also mean gliosis which is proliferation of astrocytes in damaged areas of the central nervous system. You need your neurologist to correlate with your clinical findings. I cannot comment further via this medium. Take care.

Thank you for getting back to me so quickly with your answer. I understand there are some issues that ethically cannot be further commented on so I will just have to be a little more patient and wait to see my Neurologist. :+)

Regards and thanks,
