What Does This MRI Mean?

A few tiny sites of white matter punctate hyperintensity within the frontal lobes bilaterally. 2-3 nonenhancing. No greater than 2 mm in size. Best visualized on sagittal FLAIR sequence, series 8 images 9 on the left images 17-20 on the right. Nonspecific. Again, no abnormal diffusion or enhancing characteristics. The remainder of the white matter tracts unremarkable.

Kinda hard to visualize it. If you are really worried just act your doctor, or if possible post a picture.

I'm assuming this is a brain mri. There are a few tiny lesions in the frontal lobe of the brain on both sides (bilaterally) that pick up differently than the surrounding tissue, best seen on a specific algorithm called FLAIR. The images refer to specific cuts of the MRI. It doesn't mean that there is disease, doesn't mean that there isn't disease (nonspecific). Nothing else unusual about it, nothing else is suspicious.
