Help me with these MRI results, please!

I had an MRI with and without contrast s/p 3 weeks. The results read as follows:
On FLAIR imaging only there is a mild diffuse possibly nodular increased signal intensity of the bilateral periventriculat white matter, greatest along the frontal horns of both lateral ventricles. Also on FLAIR imaging only there are multiple small rounded well-defined bilateral subcortical white matter hyperintensities measuring 1mm to 5mm in diameter, at least 10 in number each side within the frontal, temporal and parietal lobes. No associated mass or abnormal enhancement.

Is this the white plaques that you hear about with MS? Does this mean I am looking at an MS diagnosis?

I don't think so ... I think you need to wait until the neurologist goes over this with you.  This may be normal aging or something.  It's not time to panic yet.  :)
