I’m unclear what the loop means (“small Vertebral Artery Loop Formation”). I have seen this reporting on many brain MRIs (“partially confluent bilateral cerebral subcortical and periventricular white matter T2 hyperintensities, probably secondary to small vessel disease”) and have always been told by radiologists to ignore it.
