Hello, thanks for the question.
CT scan or Computerized Tomography scan is a tool to diagnose the disease, a guide to medical treatment, and monitor the success of a therapy. CT scan is a tool that can see the condition of the inside of the body more clearly and more detailed than ordinary x-rays. CT head scan can describe the condition of bones and soft tissue (brain) more clearly. On the results of CT scan where there are lesions in the brain shows the existence of damaged brain tissue. This tissue damage can be caused due to injury, tumor / mass, infection, and other causes. Multiple lesions show that the number of lesions formed is large in several parts of the brain. These lesions in the brain can be dangerous if not handled properly and quickly, because they can cause nerve damage to death. Symptoms caused depend on the location of the lesion or part of the brain affected, can cause paralysis, speech disorders, bowel movements, headaches, seizures, disorientation, language disorders, impaired cognitive functions such as thinking, remembering, and so forth. We recommend that you consult the results of the examination again with your doctor who asked for a CT scan on your mother. The doctor will match the results of this examination with the clinical condition that is being experienced so that the doctor can suggest the best treatment what can be done. We recommend that you do routine control to the doctor, the consumption of drugs as directed by the doctor, and consult a doctor immediately if the complaint gets worse.
