What does this Mean?

1. Subjective mild reduction in volume of hemispheric white matter and borderline delayed subcortical myelination.

2. There are a few puctate foci of increased FLAIR signal in the subcortical white matter, the frontal lobes, which could reflect volume averaging about perivascular spaces or small foci of gliosis from prior insult.

Hi there!

This means that there is delayed development of insulating substance over the nerve fibres with decrease in volume and minute abnormal signals which could represent small areas of cellular proliferation or normal spaces around blood vessels. It is advised to correlate the study with a clinical evaluation. This is best discussed with your treating neurologist.
Hope this helps.

Take care!

I already had the clinical evaluation and they are doing genetic testing and metabolic blood work. What are the causes of this? Could this be something like ADHD? My mother told me that my speech therapist said that some of my myelin could be missing because of my ADHD. Could this be true?
