Avatar n tn Depending on how an MRI scan is completed it can show both acute and chronic strokes. Radiologists comment on the fact that there is no acute stroke either to indicate that they did special imaging to look for an acute stroke, or because this is a common reason to obtain a MRI of the brain. Chronic strokes can be seen with standard MRI techniques, and therefore the comment normal MRI excludes the presence of chronic strokes.

The MRI showed old infarct in pons area + acute infarct in anterior portion of corpus callosum + subacute infarct in the other side of the corpus callosum. It also showed lesions in the thalamic portion + basil ganglia.

Avatar n tn I suppose people like your husband and myself have a different way of taking the stroke into our system. Like what the doctors told me, I am lucky, that I am able to walk, no speech problems and my right arm and leg are well. Please see a doctor soon.

Avatar n tn However, it is more important to ask the radiologist about his over-all impression of the findings, whether these are more likely to be benign or malignant. These findings can be summarized by a standardized reporting system known as the birads score. You can find more information about the birads classification here: http://biradsclass.blogspot.com This classification would tell us if the findings are most likely benign, or would need additional tests.
Avatar n tn My husband suffered a stroke approximately 6 months ago. They are unsure as to the cause but feel it may be migraine induced. It affected 3 areas in his brain including occipital-parietal, thalamic and cerebellar. He is 32 years old and previously very active and healthy.

Avatar m tn LI-RADS (Liver Imaging Reporting and Data System) is both a set of standardized terminology and a classification system for imaging findings in liver lesions. The LI-RADS score for a liver lesion is an indication of its relative risk for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) otherwise known as liver cancer. HCC is a very deadly cancer if not treated in its early phase.
Avatar n tn My mother recently suffered an acute stroke after a mini-stroke two weeks earlier. While at the hospital the neurologist told our family that had they known she had atrial fibrillation in her first mini-stroke, they would have prescribed coumadin and the acute stroke would likely have been prevented. I was told by a geriatric nurse practitioner friend that they should have done the Holter EKG rather than the short EKG as it would have detected the atrial fibrillation.
2030686 tn?1351688548 In my opinion, not too much, but that is just my opinion. I think it was Yogi Berra that said "nobody gets outa' here alive". There is a good book called "The End Of Illness", by Agus where he says that cancer is a verb, not a noun. That the body is constantly "cancering", but the immune system usually stops it. He makes a good case and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in their health...
