Thanks for writing to us.

I will tell you that MRI findings always should be correlated with clinical data. I have noted your complaints and MRI data.

This findings are non-specific and can be seen in people with high blood pressure, diabetes etc. This findings per se don't point towards any specific disease/condition. You need not worry at all.

Hope this helps
Please get back to me if you have any questions in this issue

Best wishes
