Osteochondritis?

I had a MRI done last week on my right knee as i continue to have pain for last 6 months. The images of the MRI are available in the following link and below is the impression reported after the scan.

1. A small area of significant focal hyper-intense signal in the subchondral bone along the postero lateral aspecct of proximal tibia with an associated focal hyper-intense signal within the overlying articular cartilage, the appearances are suggestive of osteocohndritis / sequelae to osteochondral injury.
2. Mild muciod degeneration of posterior horm of mdeial meniscus with a small suspicious tear extending to articular margin.
3. Chondromalacia patella - Grade II

I'm having a consultation with my surgeon next week. Can some decipher what the images and the reports are showing?
