Nonspecific: Sometimes there are some changes or abnormal signal that we see on MRI in the deeper parts of the brain called the "white matter" that show up on an MRI scan. These changes can be non-specific meaning not diagnostic of any particular diseases or related to narrowing of small vessels or sometimes due to diseases such as multiple sclerosis. Happy to review the MRI through a virtual consult. Best!
