-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Plain Ct of Brain performed on 64 slice MD CT.
Axil and coronal images were filimed.

Patchy hypodense areas are seen in right frontal region and bilateral parietal white matter, posterior to posterior horns of both lateral ventricales - suggestive of ischemic areas / infract

Rest of the brain is normal.
No evidence of midline shift.
Posterior fossa is normal.
No extra -axil collection is seen..

IMPRESSION: patchy hypodense areas in right frontal region and bilateral parietal white matter, posterior to posterior horns of both lateral ventricales - suggestive of ischemic areas / infract

Re: Ct scan report-brain

it would appear based upon the findings that he has possibly had a series or simply more than one stroke occur at some points? tho ischemia can occur for other reasons too, it does state an infarct which is basically a larger type of stroke that kind of killed off a level of tissue in the area. they just see that residual type of damage that gets left behind when that occurs. my mom has the very same finding from her pretty significant stroke years ago too.

the best thing for him would be to really just get him to a good neurologist who can keep monitoring him for any new changes along the way, along with just doing that important eval/consult. he or she would also be able to tell you the very best things for him to actually do to reduce the chances of this occuring again and how to deal with any possible disabilitys he may have suffered from this occuring too.

but a neurologist is who i would make certain he follows up with here given his results. it would be the best doc for this type of issue. i do hope things are not too bad given what already occured. please let me know how he is doing. marcia

just what was going on with him before this scan that actually prompted someone to have this scan done in the first place? what were his symptoms? marcia

Re: Ct scan report-brain

i really don't understand just what that dr actually thinks but based upon those findings, the first thought WOULD be some level of stroke going on. just seeing or having the sudden onset of symptoms he is having alone, you know what i mean? just what DID his doc say was going on if it was not an actual stroke then? i would most DEFINETLY get him in to see an actual neurologist since i really cannot imagine just what this doc is thinking here. he really does not sound like a good or even qualified doc if he is not seeing what is actually there in the CT report. just showing an infarct IS evidnece of a stroke. that is what i really don't get here about his doc at all. he just NEEDS a good neurologist for the best post care.

just getting him to see an actual specialist who deals with brain bleeds and other types of brain problems IS the right and appropriate type of doc for him to just be seeing right now. the neurologiost would more than likely also want to have an MRI done on his brain as well. this would just better define things that actually caused the symptoms to begin with. he most definitely had some type of an 'event' take place inside his brain that caused the symptoms. that is what really NEEDS to be fully identified right now. he needs to know what is actually going on inside his brain and i do not see this happening with his current doc at all really.

once he actually has seen a neurologist for a full neuro eval, that is when he will let you know what your dads real needs are, espescially any physical therepy that has to be started as soon as possible after an event like this just takes place in someones brain at all. in alot of cases, with the right therepies Rxed by a good neurologist, that would be what will help him most right now to regain back some abilities that were kind of lost when that event took place in his brain. since this occured at all, your dad just really NEEDS to have a good neurologist in charge of monitoring his brain for any new changes that can take place with other events too. unfortuently he is at a higer risk now of having possible other events like stroke since he had this episode occur.

sorry i cannot help you with the right therepies and such, i am not a doc by any means. this is the info you will get from the neurologist since his primary doc really does not seem to care or really understand the overall complexities of his condition either. quite honestly, i would seriously find another primary care doc for your dad. this particular doc is not one that i would want to be taking care of any of my family at all, really. he just NEEDS better care than he has gotten so far from a more hands on knowledgable and caring primary.

but he has to really start seeing a good neurologist just based upon what you have stated here and what was found just on that CT too. this just IS the appropriate type of doc to be getting all the info and questions about care that you have right now. everything that is needed is much more individualized according to his overall medical condition and his new needs right now, ya know what i mean? i do wish you lots of luck with this and hope your dad gets better once he gets to the right types of docs. i seriously would find another primary tho. his current one really kind of scares me here. your dad just had a very serious life altering event take place inside his brain and this doc really does not seem to understand it at all or really care. thats just lazy and not the care your dad deserves either. please let me know how things are going. good luck jin, Marcia
