Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

They mean increased intensity of the white matter – indicating degeneration, demyelination , vascular insult on so on.
FLAIR is Fluid Attenuated Inversion Recovery and it is a technique to suppress the signal from fluids like cerebro spinal fluid (CSF) so as to enhance a lesion...
     The final interpretation depends on correlation with the clinical details...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
