This is Dr. David
sounds like you had a brain MRI scan.
No intracranial hemorrhage: no bleeding in the brain.
No midline shift: no abnormal swelling which would distort the brain.
the radiologist are seeing most likely benign cysts or fluid balls in the brain on your brain MRI scan.
the radiologist think they are prominent periventricular spaces or larger than usual fluid spaces next to your ventricles which are normal fluid collections in your brain.
or neural glial cysts which are benign.
these cyst will show up bright on T2 weighted images.
you should see a neurosurgeon about these cysts
but most likely you can just leave them be and just monitor them.
let me know if you have questions.
get a copy of your MRI scan report.
can you upload your whole MRI scan report?
Neuroglial cysts are congenital lesions that develop a sequestration of neural tube embryonic elements that develop into a glial cell lined, fluid filled cavities in the brain
that means they would have been there since you were born.
have you ever had a brain MRI or CT scan before in your life?
prior scans would be able to tell if these were there before.
