Hello.Thanks for the question.From MRI details there is no any major concern as such.Only the bright signal in corana radiata and centrium semiovale is suggestive of previous minor infarct or vascular insult.This doesn't need any treatment and should not be cause of concern.It is not the cause of headache.Parotid lesion is incidental finding.Parotid gland is located on either side of face adjacent to ear lobe.So that should not be concern as well.Other details in MRI report are within in normal limit.I hope this would answer your concerns.Regards.
