Hello, I'm a 35 year old female. I've been having dizziness on and off for about a month. After a few doctors visits and false diagnoses (low blood pressure, bppv) I finally got a CT Scan with and without contrast. The CT with contrast was normal, but the CT without contrast reads as follows:
The head CT shows no intracranial hemorrhage, extra-axial fluid collection or mass lesion. Mild bilateral deep white matter hypodensities are present, greater in the left parietal lobe suggesting chronic small vessel ischemic changes. A focus of acute
infarct is not completely excluded. The ventricles are normal in size and shape. The basal ganglia and posterior fossa appear unremarkable.
Mild vascular calcifications are present. The mastoid air cells and paranasal sinuses appear clear. No acute soft tissue or bony abnormality detected.
I'm over a week out from my follow up appointment to discuss this with my doctor. Can someone please help me understand what this means?
