Brain Mri White Spots
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 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 high calcium levels, brain MRI showed spots in white matter, pain on right side abdomin. Dr mentioned aphasia-can all these be realted? Im 41
Possible: Exact scenario may be hard. Need ct of chest, abdomen, & pelvis to rule out any cancer that could cause high calcium or sarcoidosis. If not done, need parathyroid and vitamin d levels. It may be that you take calcium or Tums that increased your calcium in blood which if high enough causes confusion and weakness. If so, brain findings may relate to a virus possibly herpes vs others. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Hello I've had 2 MRI brain scans for white spots on my brain and the expert doctors here still don't know what it is i need answers now! I've even had?
Many possibilities: Sounds like you're referring to t2 white matter hyper intensities. The possible causes are numerous. Developing some small spots is really fairly normal as one ages, but the devil is in the details of your films, your history, and your exam. Your neurologist would be best one to determine what these may be, if they are concerning, and if they require further investigation. ...Read more
Had normal brain MRI in 2014 (headaches and optical migraines). Doc mentioned white spots apparently from the headaches. It scared me tho. common?
Mixed bag: This web article is on point: http://www.dizziness-and-balance.com/disorders/central/pvm.htm About half of normal folks over 65 have T2 abnormalities (white spots). Folks in their 40s with migraines can also present this way. It is nonspecific though so a repeat MRI in a patient with continued symptoms could be considered, mostly since there is little risk due to MRI in patients who can have them ...Read more
Lots of things: "bright spots" on an MRI have various causes. They can range from benign, insignificant findings to infections, injuries, metabolic problems and more. An MRI is only a tool, and the findings need to be put in the context of the patient's clinical condition. Mri's are often ordered unnecessarily and then odd findings (like bright spots) can make a straightforward case much more confusing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

See neurologist: There are many reasons for 'lesions' or 'white spots' but there shouldn't be many in someone aged 48. Would suggest seeing a neurologist for thorough evaluation and correlation between spots and clinical symptoms. ...Read more
Had brain mri/wcontrast.Small spot rt side seen by neuro said hypertension maybe but no ms.Should i be worried.Taking 81mg aspirin now mra of neck nex?
Small white spot: A single small white spot should not be cause for concern. It can be caused by high blood pressure. Since you have high blood pressure, it makes sense to use a little aspirin. We see white spots in 50% of our brain MRI's up here. If you also have headaches, it is reasonable to have the MRA test. Otherwise I am not sure why this test was ordered. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How likely am i to be diagnosed with ms? I originally went to the doctor for numbness and tingling in my hand and foot and have gotten severe pain in my opposite arm and hip on two occasions. One white spot was found on my brain mri, minor degenerative c
Hard to say: One white spot on brain MRI is nonspecific. If it is in a particular area (corpus callosum) it would be more concerning, otherwise it could have been from prior brain infection (encephalitis) or trauma (shearing injury). Your symptoms are a bit more worrisome. Perhaps a spinal fluid analysis will help. Neurology consult would be useful. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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
What further testing is done to find out what caused white spots to show up on the brain when an MRI was done?

Old, however, are usually abnormal and may be seen with multiple sclerosis among many other entities. 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

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

MRI brain: The thinning myelin and white spots are often described in the usual aging of the brain.
