report of MRI

My father is 64 years old , we did MRI for him and this is the result could you explain what means?

- no hypercute or acute infarcts on the DWI

- few small deep white matter ischemic foci, displaying low signal on T1WI and high signal on T2WI and FLAIR , denoting small vessel disease

- marked brain involutional changes noted mainly peripherally, particularly in the fronto-parietal region
-no intra or extra -axial SOL.
- normal ventricular system
-normal MRI appearance of the posterior fossa structures.

IMPRESSION :
prominent brain involutional changes, mainly frontoparietal, for clinical correlation

no hypercute or acute infarcts on the DWI = No strokes on Diffusion Weighted Images

few small deep white matter ischemic foci, displaying low signal on T1WI and high signal on T2WI and FLAIR , denoting small vessel disease = This is that age related ischemic disease that is always brought up as a possibility.  In this case, age and the images seem appropriate.

marked brain involutional changes noted mainly peripherally, particularly in the fronto-parietal region  = Age related atrophy of the brain.

no intra or extra -axial SOL.  = No space occupying lesion (sometimes will be stated as No mass effect.)

normal ventricular system = Normal fluid filled areas.

normal MRI appearance of the posterior fossa structures = normal brain stem and cerebellum
