MRI result is Prominent sulci supratentorially related to atrophy

Posted by gregfla @gregfla, Jan 17 4:32pm

I am a 60 year old male who recently received the results of an MRI which have me concerned. I show no signs of cognitive impairment or any other symptoms other than a very slight inability to "grab" words. This has been going on for a couple of years but nothing serious or consistently recurring. I have not told my wife or family and do not want to alarm anyone until I have a better idea of what to do. I intend on seeing a neurologist in the next couple of weeks (difficult to get appointment). Is there any reference you can point me to where I can learn more in advance?

Hello, @gregfla – welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. My apologies for the delay.

I am like that, too, sometimes, that if something is possibly amiss I will pull back and gather more information before presenting it to family members.

One of the best resources I can recommend on cerebral atrophy would be one of the NIH sites https://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/all-disorders/cerebral-atrophy-information-page.

Have you been able to get in with a neurologist? If so, what did she or he say?
