Very nonspecific : These nonspecific hyperintense specs can come from many sources. Sometimes migraines can do it. Vascular migraines. For certain as we age these white spikes of signal can present, just to name a few.

Likely old area: Suspect this dates back years and no contemporary correlation with the rationale for imaging. Agree with interpretation
