This was found when I had an MRI done a year ago. Just trying to find out why the doctor never mentioned this to me. If it's something I should worry about in the future.
It would help to know what the mri was done on, your head your belly, what?
It is changes in the brain that are common in hypertensive (high blood pressure) patients especially in older patients. If you are younger than 25 it may be a consideration. If you are older than that, it is a normal finding. That is why he never mentioned it.
