Hi there!

T2 hyperintensity and flare are descriptions of radiological images. With the radiological description, this appear to be due to areas of reduced blood supply to the brain resulting in ischaemia. It would be best to discuss the situation and the suggested management plan in detail with your treating neurologist.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
