Some of the terms that the MRI reports are pretty confusing for a common man. It actually needs an interpretation from the treating doctor. Hence if you observe the end comments say to correlate clinically.

As far as the terms above are concerned, there are astrocytes which appear at the site of injury in the brain which cause scar formation in the brain. Demyelination is expected during healing and scare formation.
