Thank you for posting your query.

Your wife's MRI brain report shows features of multiple infarcts in the brain (blood clots due to lack of blood flow).

Treatment would consist of physiotherapy, speech therapy, etc. medications such as aspirin would help in preventing further strokes. Underlying risk factors such as sugar, BP, cholesterol, etc should be checked and treated too.
