Brain Mri White Spots
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
It depends: 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. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Nonspecific: Scattered white spots confined to the white matter of the brain are fairly common and not specific for a certain disease. White spots in a person less than 50 yrs.

As one ages, these are more likely due to tiny arterial blockages and are fairly common in people over 70 yrs. Old. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Brain MRI findings. Tiny nonspecific periventricular and subcortical white matter. Possiblities mini strokes, vasculaties, ms. I shuffle my feet & drop?
Nonspecific finding: White matter changes that are nonspecific are sometimes over reported or under-reported on MRI studies. They may be misread and really suggest MS, they may be a finding with no clinical relevance. Usually it is the latter. It sounds like the brain MRI did not help that much. So you shuffle your feet and drop? What do you mean by drop? Do you have numbness? Why was the brain MRI done? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

More likely HTN: Mri scans that demonstrate the scattered periventricular signal changes are likely showing changes from hypertension. This is a typical location for this. Severe concussions may show some signal abnormalities along the white matter tracks (diffuse axonal injury) rather than in the periventricular zones. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Common finding: 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.

Few things: If by brain scan you mean mri, then "white patches" at your age are probably part of aging, nonspecific, unimportant. Of course they can also represent other things such as ms. I would recommend correlating your symptoms with the finding. If you weren't being worked up for ms than don't worry about it. Hope this helps. ...Read more
My mother, 84, MRI scan> subacute infarcts, bilateral frontal lobes, small vessel ischematic changes inthe basal ganglia, periventricular white matter?
Small vessel disease: Mri in a 84 years old lady showing infarcts and small vessel disease means she is having ministrokes. That is very common in that age group. If she has heart disease or carotid artery disease or risk factors like high BP or diabetes or high lipids they should be controlled and she should follow up with her dr who can give her further recommendations. ...Read more
