Hi there!

Well, without a detailed radiological description of the lesions and clinical evaluation it would be difficult to comment specifically on what these lesions could be due to. These could represent a primary neurological pathology such as demyelination etc or a vascular issue. It would be best to discuss the findings in detail with the concerned radiologist and the treating neurologist.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
