Brief Answer:
White matter is normally present in the brain.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for posting your query.

I am Dr Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist, and I would try my best to help you.

I have noted your details. Based on this, I would like to say that white matter is normally present in brain and it would be visible on MRI too. What we need to know is that- whether the white matter is normal or is there any abnormality present?

Most MRI reports of brain are 1-2 pages long. So, I am surprised that you received a 200 page report. Can you upload the first two pages of the report?

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
