Firstly I wish to point out that my mother suffered from Alzheimers and I was with her when she had an MRI that highlighted the disease. I recently had an MRI myself as I have been suffering from frequent headaches, the MRI found nothing to indicate why I have been having these headaches. What it did show were multiple scattered subcortical ischemic foci within all hemispheric regions except the temporal lobes. Unfortunately I do not see my neurologist until 19th April but in the meantime I am anxious to understand what that means. My question is at this time - is it possible that because of the brain damage mentioned above, caused I understand by lack of blood circulation in these areas, that I may be susecptible to alzheimers or other forms of dementia?
