Thanks for writing to us.
The findings of CT scan and MRI are suggestive of a minor stroke. The predisposing factors like hypertension, diabetes, hypercholesterolemia need to be taken care of. The lesions are small and minor and medical treatment is not likely to affect the lesions much.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
