Re: MRI brain - do new lesions (posterior) tend to indicate anything in particular or particular cause? (seizure activity is ruled out)

Complex issue: Mri is a picture but not a real measure of function. "lesions" on MRI are of little value unless they correlate with clinical problems. Many findings on MRI are normal variation. Review all findings with you primary doctor.
