Thanks for coming to JustAnswer.

I am a double board certified clinical doctor and will be happy to help.

This can be from


small blood vessel disease, significant or not.

autoimmune diseases, MS for exam.

You need to have a neurologist or internal medicine doctor go over this with the radiologist who read it.

I am happy to look at the whole report here if you type it in or attach.
