Chronic Microvascular Ischemic White Matter Disease of the Brain on MRI

Want a video like this of your own MRI/CT? Go to www.mediphany.com

As you may have seen, many brain MRI reports mention findings such as:
- Nonspecific T2/FLAIR hyperintensities
- Chronic microvascular ischemic disease
- Small vessel or microangiopathic disease

These findings are very common and usually result from either normal aging or secondary to microvascular disease caused by hypertension, high cholesterol, smoking, and/or diabetes.

If you have had an MRI of your brain, this video will help you better understand what these findings mean in general and for you.

Dr. Evan, a highly trained neuroradiologist who specializes in brain imaging, will start by explaining in detail the anatomy of the gray and white matter of the brain. Then, he will compare a normal brain MRI with MRI images of a brain with mild and severe microvascular white matter changes.
