They said that the blood circulation was reduced
Expert:  DR MED MD replied 6 years ago.
did they mentioned any dead area in brain?

Thanks
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
They didn't say that any area was dead, but I think they meant it was hurt. If it is dead, does it show on the scanning?
Expert:  DR MED MD replied 6 years ago.
If blood supply to a area is reduces or stops then that area becomes dead with few wks.

Dead brain tissue can be easily diagnosed on MRI or CT.
