Hello Sandy,
Thanks for asking this question.  From your comments below, I assume
you wanted interpretation of your question:
"MRI scan which showed multiple FULSEY? of abnormal T2 signal in the
white matter."

It is extremely likely that "FULSEY" is "foci" of abnormal T2 signal
in the white matter.

Here is a case study from the University of Iowa that uses similar
language when interpreting an MRI:
"MRI brain scan revealed multiple foci of increased signal in the
periventricular white matter on T2 weighted images . . ."

Please use any answer clarification before rating this answer. I will
be happy to explain or expand on any issue you may have.

Hello sandy,
I'm not quite sure what you're asking, but to interpret your MRI
reading, do you mean multiple foci of abnormal T2 signal . . .?
