CT HEAD - Minor small vessel ischaemic disease

Clinical Information:



Fine slice non-contrast helical CT images were obtained from the skull base to the vertex. Brain and bone windows were reconstructed.




No intra or extra-axial mass lesions or collections are identified. The ventricles and sulcal spaces are within normal limits and there is no midline shift. The midline structures are normal.

No loss of the grey-white matter junction is seen. Note is made of minor patchy reduced density in the corona radiata consistent with minor small vessel ischaemic disease.

The orbits have a normal appearance and the paranasal sinuses and mastoid air cells are clear.

No bony abnormality is seen.


Minor small vessel ischaemic disease of the deep white matter is noted. Otherwise normal CT head.
