moderate Diffuse Cerebral Atrophy with nonspecific periventricular hyperintensities
Brain MRI indicate "moderate Diffuse Cerebral Atrophy with nonspecific periventricular hyperintensities, consistent with small vessel occlusive disease."

What does this mean and what are recommendations. Thanks!

RE: moderate Diffuse Cerebral Atrophy with nonspecific periventricular hyperin
Some amount of diffuse cerebral atrophy is normal with increasing age. Cerebral atrophy can also be seen in Dementia.

Periventricular area is in the white matter. White matter hyperintensities can be seen in vascular dementia. The MRI suggests occlusion (may be due to fat deposits) of small blood vessels in the brain.

With more info re symptoms will help us think in the right direction.
