Anyone interpret my results?

My doctor suspected I might have MS so he sent me for an MRI. What he didn't tell me was he was going out of town on holiday so I am left with the anxiety of not knowing. Can anyone help me understand the results?

Examination: MRI of the brain without contrast.

Technical factors: Gradient localizers, axial FLAIR, proton
density, diffusion, and T2-weighted images with sagittal
T1-weighted spin-echo images and coronal T2-weighted images.

History: Paresthesias in the extremities.

Comparison: None.

The ventricles and sulci are normal are normal for age. Negative
for mass or significant mass-effect. Negative for intracranial
hemorrhage. There is a focus of increased T2 signal in the right
frontal white matter near the vertex measuring 7 mm in maximum
dimension. Other tiny lesions are seen bilaterally. These are
primarily in the deep white matter without significant
periventricular distribution. There is no evidence of diffusion
restriction. Normal signal flow-void identified within the
internal carotid arteries, basilar artery and superior sagittal
sinus. The pituitary gland appears normal. The posterior fossa
structures, including the cranial nerves appear intact. The
paranasal sinuses and mastoid air cells are clear. The orbits are

Impression: Scattered white matter lesions are nonspecific. They
could be seen with previous trauma, infection, migraine headaches
among other etiologies. No evidence of an active lesion.

Re: Anyone interpret my results?

It seems that most of the testing is negative. It might be best to wait for the doctor, and think positive thoughts. Perhaps think that if you do have anything wrong, the doctors might now be able to start helping you. You must have had some symptoms to bring you to the doctors, so think about how if you need help you went to the right place for it.

I hope things work out for you, and that your doctor is able to tell you the results soon.
