In brief: Here goes

I am unaware of why you required an MRI of brain, but the described lesions could be present due to migraine, prior head trauma, smoking, prior infections, even MS, but the description is not the common pattern.
Does this help, or do you need more involved answers via Concierge visit?

In brief: CSVD

Description of MRI findings are made by radiologists, then take into account age/limited history from referring MD.
