Dr. Gary Kilgo answered:

Why did a Mri of brain showed "nonspecific white matter"?

Common finding

126486670
The scan probably read as "non specific white matter changes" which is can be seen in scans of people with migraine. This is a fairly common statement in a radiology report. The findings should be correlated with your physician's evaluation. There may be a reason to repeat the MRI in six months to a year.

Do small white spots on mri of brain indicate multiple sclerosis?

It depends

Multiple_sclerosis
Like many things in medicine, it depends. Some of it depends on the patient's symptoms, age. Many people have "white spots" on MRIs; there can be non-specific small vessel white matter disease seen on the MRI of many individuals with a western diet. White spots on an MRI also can mean MS, but it is usually in a certain pattern that is more specific for MS. Discuss your MRI with your neurologist.

Can many lesions on an MRI of Brain indicate previous stroke or other causes?

Can be nonspecific

Multiple_sclerosis
White matter lesions can be seen with migraines, prior head or neck trauma, due to aging, microvascular angiopathy, multiple lacunar strokes or emboli, CADASIL, and multiple sclerosis to name a few. This needs to be definitively pinned down and appropriate treatment intervention started.

Dr. Ronald Widman answered:

Can a CBC and MRI of brain without contrast be normal if bacterial meningitis is present?

Id

Mri
Likely the white cell count would be elevated but can be lower then normal. It is possible the white count can be normal. MRI is not usually helpful to diagnose meningitis. Best way to diagnose is doing a spinal tap
