Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
as we all get older, we can have small broken blood vessels in the brain which can show up white matter ischemic changes bright on T2 weighted images.
as we get older as well, it is very common to see atrophy and shrinkage of the brain.
these typically are not precursors to dementia
regular exercise and eating healthy and getting good circulation into the brain can help you prevent dementia
let me know if you have questions.
