Can you type exactly what the report says?
The key word in all this is encephalomalacia, which is a softening or loss of brain tissue following cerebral infarct (ischemic stroke), or an infection, trauma, etc.
Lucency is just a description of what was seen in the left occipital lobe. and the left basal ganglia (two parts of the left side of the brain). It means those areas show darker on the scan as opposed to opaque which is normal.
It further states that there are no new findings and the lucency is from the already diagnosed stroke last autumn.
Please let me know if this isn't clear.
