can anyone tell me what this means?

my MRI report says there is an abnormal number of tiny predominantly 2-3 mm in size foci of abnormally increased T2 and FLAIR sequence signal seen in the bifrontal subcortical deep white matter region as well as in the high centrum semiovale, but to a lesser extent bilaterally. these do not align themselves in a particular or morphological fashion about the lateral ventricles. however, clinical correlation with a demyelinating process must be considered. it goes on to say at least a dozen of tiny foci can be seen.

I would suspect ms too EXCEPT that your lesions were not periventricular which is where MS  lesions typically show.  The deep white matter lesions are usually some other disease process, I think.  Small vessel disease is most common white matter disorder and appears with multiple small foci of increased T2signals.  Sorry for the confusion.   que03
