My MRI shows: Few foci of subcortical, periventricular and deep white matter hyperintense T2/FLAIR signal abnormality which are nonspecific and may be secondary to chronic microvascular ischemic changes. Also shows: normal in caliber. No abnormal brain parenchymal enhancement. A small focal area of susceptibility signal abnormality within the left parietal lobe which may represent a small focus of chronic Microhemorrhage, mineralization or a small cavernoma. What does this mean?
