Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It means softening of the white matter at areas / from degeneration, vascular insufficiency, multiple sclerosis and so on – this in turn leads to secondary enlargement of the ventricles...
The features have to be correlated clinically and with other investigations...
Discuss with your doctor...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
