Hi everyone, I've been having almost daily headaches for awhile now so my Dr sent me for an MRI. (I have other issues as well but won't get into them all here lol) I got the results yesterday but am not completely sure what it all means. Can anyone help? Here is what it says. MR of the Brain History Headaches
Technique Sagittal T1 and Axial T1/T2/Flair images of the brain
Findings The midline is central. Ventricles and sulci are within normal limits. There is a small focus of increased signal in the deep white matter of the right vertex. This is non-specific and of unknown etiology and may be related to chronic microvascular changes. A focus of demyelination cannot completely be excluded in this age group. A focus of increased signal measures 7mm. The remainder of the white matter is clear. Diffusion weighted imaging is normal with no signs of acute ischemia. The foramen magnum is clear. There is no abnormal mass or collection.
