What does it mean by the following from my MRI brain result? Thanks.
There are nonspecific with differential considerations include mild chronic small vessel ischemic changes, demyelinating disease, and inflammatory processes.
It means the doctor who wrote the report saw some things on your MRI that are unusual, but he does not know the exact cause of those things. He is proposing three possible explanations: either some of the small blood vessels in your brain have been deprived of their normal blood supply, or there has been a loss of myelin on some of the nerve fibers, or there has been some inflammation of that area of brain tissue. He can't give an exact diagnosis, at least not from the MRI alone.
