The caudate nucleus heads are markedly atrophic resulting in enlargement of the frontal horns and increased inter-caudate distance (22mm) and increased inner table to intercaudate caudate ratio (0.23 (normal 0.09 - 0.12)). Putamen are also markedly decreased in size with increased T2 signal. Mild globus pallidus mineralization within normal limits. Otherwise cerebral volume is age appropriate.
