ischemic disease

My brother in law is a 31 year old hispanic that has bean complainng of head achs,dizziness, and has bean complaing of blurring of his vision.
He had a MRI done of his brain,It sounds that everything is O.K. I think! The Vascular flow voids are unremarkable. No abnormality is seen in the skull base or bony calvarium. The mid-brain, brain stem, pons, medulla& cerebellum are unremarkable.
And no abnormality is seen in diffusion images. But he is still haveing the same problems and they seam to be geating worst,Do to my husband. Please help me understand!.
In the MRI CONCLUSION IT SAYS
      1. FOCI OF INCREASE SIGNAL IN THE DEEP WHITE MATTER OF THE CEREBRAL HEMISPHERES IS CONSISTENT WITH DEEP WHITE MATTER ISCHEMIC DISEASE.
      2. EXAMINATION IS OTHERWISE UNREMARKABLE.
  My Question is should We be WORRIED I Dont undestand!In the Conclusion of the MRI They say Ischemic Disease And also otherwise Unremarkable. PLEASE HELP TO BETTER UNDERSTAND THE RESULTS. Thank Very Much For Your Time!

The report reads pretty thorough. It is also compared to the
Dr's clinical evaluation. An ischemic attack/lesion/gliosis/
stroke all sound scarey but mean abt the same thing. The type
tecniques used on mri involve many angles/views/signals. The
ischemic actually means vessel or vascular hemorrhage bleed.
Foci generally means very small & is seldom measured. These
can happen from severe stress/hdaches/injury. They're usually
found incidently on a scan. They seal on there own. It appeared
in a location that wasn't in path to interrupt any transmission
to affect other nerves. I had a 1.3cm show up on a mri & never
knew it happened. This was called a ischemic gliosis since the
signals showed it was very old scar tissue. Probably happened
10 yrs ago since I'm not a stressful person but had a death
in family & later had migraine for 5 days. Keep copy & ask if
strokes/heart problems run in family. If they do, then this
could be a signal to alter lifestyle/foods/excercise/weight.
Sometimes vascular compression sends msg's to not feel well till
brain accepts that it's not an invassive mass. It's like a scar.
Stops being a problem after it stops.
