Hello
This is not specific to a diagnosis.
Have you hand an MRI?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

No, this is a PetScan, which, I thought, was more detailed than an MRI;

vascular depression with daily recurring headaches.

Thanks

No.
Multiple conditions can cause reduced metabolism.
Aging and dementia would both decrease metabolism.
You need the radiologists report for more details.
I would be glad to look at it.

That is the "findings" section.
I do not see any summary or impression section
