Join the club: Migraine patients frequently are found to have ubos (unidentified bright objects) on mri. They are of no clinical significance. Migraine produces vascular spasms that decrease blood flow to areas of the brain. This can result in fainting spells, lose of vision, etc. These may also result in bright spots on mri.
