Brief Answer:
No progression in future

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concern.
The MRI and ultrasound changes are due to brain injury during birth leading to mental retardation.
The findings are static and non progressive.
No increase is likely in future.
No surgical intervention required.
Learning skills and education in special schools if mental retardation is moderate to severe should be done.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Do get back to me for further queries.
