Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I would like to reassure you that your MRI brain does not show any serious abnormalities.

The findings of subcortical white matter foci are most commonly seen in cases of migraine. As such, they are not of any significance, so, the radiologist also has reported them as nonspecific.

Partial empty sella is also an incidental finding and can be seen normally.

You may discuss these with your neurologist for more clarification, in order to correlate with clinical findings.

Best wishes,
