Had a head ct done and this is what they said-- I have no idea if I should be worried if my ventricles are small and if I should be worried about the saggital sinus? My doctor said everything looks good from scan but if I wanted piece of mind from a neurologist he could refer me and one to an ENT. Iv been having chronic stuffy nose, dizzy spells and headaches :O he thinks all allergies. I am currently taking flonase every other day.
Can anyone give me insight on if I should be worried? I have anxiety so Im not sure if this is something to even get a second opinion on :O
FINDINGS: There is no CT finding of contusion, hematoma or edema.
Ventricles and basal cisterns are preserved. The ventricles are small
which could be normal for a patient of this age. The third ventricle
is slitlike and poorly visualized. There appears to be maintenance of
the basal cisterns and no extra-axial blood definitively seen. There
is some mild increase focal widening and relative increased density
along the inferior sagittal sinus. There is nothing to suggest focal
or diffuse edema. Further clinical correlation would be necessary. If
there are clinical suspicions of venous thrombus then MRI might be
No convincing evidence of a posttraumatic brain injury. Please see the
discussion above. Ventricles are very small with slitlike third
ventricle and there is some local prominence of what appears to be the
inferior sagittal sinus but no focal intracranial abnormality is
otherwise seen on CT.
