Deciphering doctors words!

Hello All

This will be a very simple question for some of you I’m sure. I’ve had my MRI results which show two lesions and “high signal right orbit” - OK I know that is the eye, but what does “high signal” actually mean?

I had optic neuritis which was my presenting symptom, no diagnosis yet of course but high chance says my super neurologist.

Thanks very much

Sam
