What is mild scattered foci?

I recently had an MRI which showed " "There are mild scattered foci of increased T2 signal throughout the periventricular and subcortical white matter.  These are non-specific."  I was ordered the MRI for ear ringing, ear pain, temple tenderness.  Trying to rule out TMJ. What is this MILD SCATTERED FOCI mean?  I am a 47 year old non-smoker.
