Stroke/microvascular ischemic disease of the pons

My dad, an active 63 yr old had a mild stroke but he has been unable to explain to us what caused it and instead tells us that he is OK now. (we lived several states away and were not immediately able to go with him). He has given us copies of his medical records from the hospital that he went to and in them they mention several items that I cannot translate. Can anyone tell me what they mean?

1) old Infracts and microvascular ischemic disease of the pons.
2) Velocity of the RT MCA - 76 is elevated above the normal limits for a 63 yr old patient.
3) velocity of the LT MCA - 98 suggests a borderline level to stenosis
