28 Possible Causes for Brain CT Scan showing Enlarged Ventricles

  • Alzheimer Disease

    BACKGROUND: Several studies have found that bilingualism can delay the age of onset of Alz-heimer disease (AD). The interpretation of these findings is that switching between two languages can enhance cognitive reserve. However, some studies have provided inconsistent results. Diverse language pairs used by the[…][]

  • Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

    Normal-pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) arises in adulthood and is characterized by a typical combination of clinical and radiological findings. The mean basal intracranial pressure is normal or mildly elevated. The typical signs of the disease are gait impairment, urinary incontinence, and dementia. The difficulty of[…][]

  • Obstructive Hydrocephalus

    MRI or CT scans can show signs CSF build-up, such as enlarged ventricles.[] Brain scans can also help doctors determine the cause of hydrocephalus, and rule out other possible reasons for the symptoms.[]

  • Communicating Hydrocephalus

    When a patient presents with symptoms of hydrocephalus, a thorough neurological examination is performed, followed by a ct or MRi brain scan. these imaging studies may show[] These imaging studies can show the ventricles in the brain and determine if they are enlarged or if there is any other physical evidence of an increase in pressure inside[] MRI or CT scans can show signs CSF build-up, such as enlarged ventricles.[]

  • Cerebral Cortical Atrophy

    Abstract Computed tomography of the head in 15 children with end-stage renal disease revealed cerebral cortical atrophy in eight and ventricular enlargement in an additional two. These changes were not necessarily associated with any clinical signs or symptoms. Although high doses of steroids may have been[…][]

  • Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis

    Abstract Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) is a progressive, fatal neurological disorder of childhood and early adolescence. In this report, we present brain magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) and conventional magnetic resonance MR imaging findings of early-stage (stage II) SSPE in an 8-year-old child.[…][]

  • Alcohol Dementia

    Even in the chronic phase, an MRI may show shrunken mammillary bodies and other changes in the brain. CT scans have showed enlarged ventricles and diencephalic lesions.[]

  • Psychomotor Retardation

    CT scans of the brain may show generalized cerebral atrophy and a hypoplastic corpus callosum.[] The ventricles may be enlarged and the EEG confirms the occurrence of myoclonic as well as tonic-clonic and focal epilepsy.[]

  • Hydrocephalus

    CT scans use several different X-rays to form a cross-sectional image of the brain. These scans can show enlarged brain ventricles that result from too much CSF.[] A CT scan showed severe dilation of the brain’s lateral ventricles, while an MRI scan revealed massive enlargement of the lateral third and fourth venricles, a very thin cortical[] Computerized tomography (CT) scans can also help diagnose hydrocephalus in children and adults.[]

  • Binswanger Disease
