No your reports did not mentioned any area which is dead.

It mentioned blood supply is reduced.

Can you please provide me more details of your MRI report.

Thanks
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
They did not say anything about dead cells, just the blood flow in the frontallap. I must call and ask them
Expert:  DR MED MD replied 6 years ago.
Why this MRI was done?

Any memory loss?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
it was done because I said there was something wrong with my brain. I have no memory loss. I am trying to call the hospital to get the details
Expert:  DR MED MD replied 6 years ago.
please let me know when you have details.

Thanks
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I don't have the details before tomorrow
Expert:  DR MED MD replied 6 years ago.
No problem.

With information you have provided this is clear that there is no area in brain which is dead.

Central nervous system i.e brain is incapable of self-repair and regeneration.However few studies have showed that special cells in brain can regenerate.

But isn't it so that the cells are dead when having FTD?
Expert:  DR MED MD replied 6 years ago.
In this there is degeneration of the frontal lobe of the brain and may extend back to the temporal lobe.

MRI will show frontal lobe and/or anterior temporal lobe atrophy but in early cases the scan may seem normal.

There is degeneration if brain tissue.
