- A large left temporo-occipital, left insular and basal ganglia as well as fronto-parietal cortical and subcortical patchy areas of restricted diffusion are seen demonstrating high DWI and low ADC signal. They demonstrate high T2 / FLAIR signal, as well as subtle hypointense T1 with patchy T1 hyperintensities and GRE blooming in the left basal ganglia and temporo-occipital region; denoting met Hb signal of haemorrhagic transformation. Mild mass effect is seen on the left lateral ventricle by the cytotoxic oedema.
- Mild dilatation of the ventricular system.
- Bilateral cerebral deep white matter as well as bilateral basal ganglia and pontine demyelinating foci with high T2 / FLAIR signal are seen; likely ischemic.
- Widened extra-axial CSF spaces.
- Large left temporo-occipital and fronto-parietal subacute haemorrhagic infarction.
- Mild atrophic brain changes with peri-ventricular arterio-sclerotic leucoencephalopathy, as well as small deep white matter, basal ganglia and pontine chronic small vessel disease.
