Im so worry i just got back my mri results there is a Punctate subcortical and migraine vasculitis that i dont know if is bad. Could you explain to me what is that?
There is no restricted diffusion.
Punctate white matter foci primarily in the frontal lobes is noted. The
ventricles and sulci are normal in size for age. The T2 vascular flow
voids appear normal. No intra-axial or extra-axial fluid collections or
hemorrhage. No midline shift or mass effect. Basal cisterns are patent.
The orbits appear normal. The paranasal sinuses are clear.
Punctate subcortical white matter foci primarily in the frontal lobes
raises differential of migraine vasculitis. Not typical distribution
for MS. Suggest contrast MRI.
The MRI describes multiple small areas of abnormality located in the front lobe of the brain which could occur secondary to vascular inflammation. Further investigation is suggested for a definitive diagnosis.
Hope this is helpful.
