Plain Ct of Brain performed on 64 slice MD CT.
Axil and coronal images were filimed.

Patchy hypodense areas are seen in right frontal region and bilateral parietal white matter, posterior to posterior horns of both lateral ventricales - suggestive of ischemic areas / infract

Rest of the brain is normal.
No evidence of midline shift.
Posterior fossa is normal.
No extra -axil collection is seen..

IMPRESSION: patchy hypodense areas in right frontal region and bilateral parietal white matter, posterior to posterior horns of both lateral ventricales - suggestive of ischemic areas / infract

Infarcts are strokes.

All strokes are different. Memory suffers quite often. A CT scan shows where the damage to the brain has occurred. One doctor said an MRI is safer. Too many scans can have the same effect as radiation and can harm the basal ganglia, which can cause all sorts of impirment. Dont want to scare yu but keep the scans to a minmum. Hope your Dad is improving. Take it easy and dont tire yourself.
