Nonspecific: Certainly, these findings are not diagnostic for any entity, and may represent old head injury, prior cigarette smoking, or even changes in arteries as you become older. Unlikely to suggest MS at age 50, but could be explanation in younger age groups. Ask your doctor to correlate with reason the MRI was done.
