In brief: Is this an MRI?

It sounds like you are reading an MRI report, what they are describing is abnormal signal on the MRI in your Navicular ( one of the bones in your foot) It sounds like there could be a fracture - maybe you had an injury, or if there was no injury but you have had pain and there is an area just below the surface of the joint that the bone has died (Avascular necrosis- AVN) hope that helps
