Abnormal Mri Of The Head White Spots
Can white spots on MRI be caused by past trauma, such as falling and hitting head as a child? (Spinal tap normal)
Motion artifact ?: Any imaging test, especially an MRI, can have spots in them that are not a real abnormality, called motion artifact. Your radiologist should be able to tell if the spots are something real or not, because the dots can represent fluid collections as well. If some question exists about whether this is a real finding, you will need to repeat the study, sorry. Trauma can cause fluid collections... ...Read more
Mri or magnetic resonance imaging is one of the more recently developed imaging modalities available to physicians. It uses powerful magnets to generate images. There is no ionizing radiation which is a major advantage over many other modalities. Mri is the best imaging exam that we have for most soft tissue and joint related problems. There are radiologists ...Read more
I have about two dozen white spots on my MRI my face and other parts of my skin are numb. I get these tremors that go from the back of my head down m?
UBOs (not UFOs): Until a diagnosis is given, white MRI spots are called ubos (unidentified bright objects) for which many different causes are known. You obviously have a brain disease (tremor & numbness). But the symptom combination is not diagnostic. At young age (20s-30s) ms (multiple sclerosis) is probably the commonest cause. See a neurologist & expect further testing. ...Read more
Brain mri-white spots/migraines. Told this is abnormal for 39 y/o. Dad & grandma-early onset dementia (50s). Do white spots = dementia in my future?
...hold on cowgirl!!: I've seen lots of scanned images with "white spots" that turned out to be artifact rather than tissue pathology...Similar to having a dirty lens on your microscope! there are some genetic markers for certain types of dementias that would be much more useful to you...And all it takes is a swab of the buccal mucosa inside your mouth, and, of course, a little money! seek more opinions on "white dots". ...Read more
Mri showed white spots, suspected MS, but spinal tap normal. Neuro says white spots benign, but what exactly causes them?
Nobody knows: ubo.(unidentified bright objects) http://neurology.about.com/od/cerebrovascular/a/What-Are-These-Spots-On-My-MRI.htm So are age spots. Indeed, age spots are very highly associated with diseases of aging like cerebrovascular disease..because they aren't in young people. Found in elephant man disease, stroke http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24936416 not so much MS. I've only seen them in normals. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What further testing is done to find out what caused white spots to show up on the brain when an MRI was done?
Spots nonspecific: At your age, spots may be consistent with microvascular angiopathy, a sign of vascular atherosclerosis or even small strokes, which may be a focus for your seizures, but such lesions may be due to migraine, head injury, multiple sclerosis, and may have little to do with current seizures. Talk to your doc, as may need a medicine to protect against stroke. ...Read more

MRI brain: The thinning myelin and white spots are often described in the usual aging of the brain. Multiple sclerosis (MS) plaques are commonly found along the corpus callosum, periventricular white matter, cerebellum, brain stem, and spinal cord. A lumbar puncture with analysis of the cerebrospinal fluid will make the diagnosis of MS. See a neurologist to discuss the MRI findings in the brain. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
