I had Ca Brerast, and recently had a CT scan of the heat and IAM (post contrast) The overall comment was focal areas of bilateral subcortical ischaemia.

I had a right mastectomy in 2005 and has recently been taken off tamoxifen. I had the CT scan to exclude secondaries and also because of memory deterioration, I have occasional postural imbalance now & then, & also the vertigo which I have had everytime I have sore throats.
How will the CT picture impact on my life and what symptoms do I look out for and pl may I know the approximate time I may have before it all happens ?

Hi Anonymous,
With the CT scan images, your physician has a clear picture of the inside of your skull. You need to ask your physician to explain to you:
what bilateral subcortical ischemia is
what symptoms you can expect
Always ask questions and ask until you fully understand.

Thanks. I just thought you might have some differential diagnosis and an eventual (?) overall picture .
Que sera sera.
