MRI Results
About 3 mths. ago, I started to become dizzy, my general doctor had me on vertigo medicine, which didn't help.  I've had a normal CT scan and was sent for an MRI (Noncontrast) it says:

No evidence of acute infarction, demyelination or neoplasm (I would think this would be good?)

Mild prominence of cerebral sulci at the v ertex, slightly more so on the left than the right, suggesting very mild volume loss.  (I have no idea what this means, is this normal?  I forgot to mention that I am a 40 yr old female)

Not a doctor, FYI. Intracranial hypotension? Cerebrospinal fluid leak? Those could cause volume loss... Or maybe they mean actual brain atrophy of some kind. Those reports are vague, huh. I was so confused about my MRI, too, I never even met the radiologist. Good luck.

Btw, infarction refers (I think) to some kind of blockage (like a heart attack, but in your brain). Demyeliniation refers to nerves being stripped of their insulation (myelin sheaths) like in multiple scerlosis. Yeah, that's good news...
