Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern from the given report of MRI I could say that this report suggestive of some ischemic changes of certain area of brain this could be possibly happens in the hypertensive patient, here the clinical symptoms and the age are not given and without this can not say any thing for sure because such report need to be correlate with clinical condition and history, have a nice day.
