What Do White Spots On The Brain Indicate On An Mri Brain Scan
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. 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 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 dystonia and black spots on my mri brain scan - could the 2 be related? I had a rta nearly 4 years ago but symptoms since & worsened after 2yrs
Lesions found on: MRI's of the brain may be either unrelated to neurological symptoms or related to an active neurological disorder. History of progression of dystonia & other neurological symptoms, family history of dystonia & records of the cause & clinical course of Renal Tubular Acidosis aid a neurologist's decision to repeat an MRI of the brain for comparison & perform genetic & other medical studies. ...Read more
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
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 more
Mri of brain showed thinning mylin and white spots as well as grey mass...could this along with other be MS?
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 more

What does the results few tiny nonenhancing T2/FLAIR signal foci within the subcortical frontal & right temporal white matter of an MRI brain scan?
Blood vessels: Most likely would be blood vessels. But that also depends on why you had the test in the first place. Usually in young people we don't see too many of these white or bright spots. As we get older they show up. Ask your doctor to explain the results on general ...Read more
What does the results few tiny nonenhancing T2/FLAIR signal foci within the subcortical frontal & right temporal white matter of an MRI brain scan? Scan was done for numbness on left side
It depends: Usually these types of findings are nonspecific, and most likely age related. They are generally asymptotic and there is no treatment. Occasionally they are a sign of other disorders, so speak to your physician to decide whether there is any follow up needed. ...Read more
I had an MRI brain scan (because of headaches and weakness and soreness of the legs). One result said, "nonspecific patchy t2 hyperintensity". Help?
Does it make sense to do a 7t MRI brain scan in epi diagnostic if 1.5t shows no abnormalities. My epi developped on the 3rd day of life.
A clinical psycholo-: -gist can help w/a treatment called systematic desensitization or self hypnosis training. If time and circumstances do not allow, practice visualizing the process, backing off and relaxing, then doing it again. Belly breathing is effective, not just chest breathing but don't hyperventilate. Like many things, it easier than you think. Peace and good health. ...Read more
CT vs MRI: Ct's and mris can focus on different things. Ct is typically used to view bone and look for bleeding while mris are used to view tissues. Also, cts use radiation similar to xrays while and MRI does not expose the patient to any radiation. However, anyone with a magnetic metal in their body can not get an mri, since MRI uses a large magnet. ...Read more
I wanted a 2nd opinion on a mri brain scan. (have disk). Have been told migraine (no history). scan normal. Severe symptoms. Numbness. Speech. Etc?
Complicated Migraine: Despite the neurological signs / symptoms, a complicated migraine (such as yours) may not show any abnormality on the MRI. The MRI is not the "catch-all" imaging test. (It has fundamental limitations, such as in this situation). the MRI cannot tell us what your nerves feel, only if there is an anatomic problem. Talk to your neurologist or find one on HealthTap Prime to find the next steps. Good L ...Read more

Also new symptoms very important to report to your doctor. Good luck ...Read more

Again tried MRI brain scan mild sedative, still can't do it. Claustrophobia, is there alternative test not CT done. Please help advise ruining out opt?

Micro infarcts on mr: This really depends on what symptoms you are having. Probably the first person you should see is a neurologist for a full evaluation. ...Read more
Can Supraorbital Neuralgia affect the sinus area? Dr suspects SN. A dull ache right above the right eyebrow. No migraines. MRI brain scan clean.
The frontal sinuses: Behind the eyebrows so it is possible. Make sure you are not getting referred pain patterns that could originate in the neck by the atlas (C1) as often it does refer to eyebrow pain. Get a second opinion from an osteopathic doctor too to correlate the findings. The osteopathic adjustment can help clear sinuses, and referred pain. Anything residual will be some other diagnosis that warrants workup. ...Read more

Had mri of brain came back abnormal, dr said I have sodium spot on brain. But did not go in to it any further. Could this cause numbness in left leg?
White matter diseas?: I'm not sure what a "sodium spot" is, but if you've ever had trouble with your electrolytes before (hyponatremia), then it could be sign of central pontine myelinolysis (CPM) - perhaps a limited type. CPM can cause paralysis & numbness. Usually it's more dramatic. If the MRI report suggests "white matter disease", it can be from a stroke & cause numbness. W/o seeing report & MRI pics, hard to know ...Read more
I have never had a head injury. What can white spots on my frontal lobe indicate on an mri? I was diagnosed with epilepsy but think this is wrong
White spots, eh?: Presumably you didn't just wander into an MRI facility and made an impulse purchase. A doctor ordered the MRI, & for a reason. The MRI isn't the patient, you are. The MD who ordered the MRI is ethically obligated to interpret the scan results & correlate them with YOU the whole patient; or, if (s)he can't, to find someone who can. Ask to see the actual images & review them with your doctor. ...Read more
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
