I have white spots on my verabrae on my MRI the size of a grape should I be worried, I don't have my results as yet so worried about it. ?

Is it normal for a MRI to show white spots on spine not the spinal cord but by the discs in between them

Is it normal for a MRI to show white spots on spine not the spinal cord but by the discs in between them

It can be: It is difficult to answer this without seeing the MRI or at least knowing more about the MRI. There are two main types of pictures taken in an MRI, they are labelled as "T1" and "T2" images. Also, sometimes contrast (a compound injected intravenously for the MRI) is given. A white area in the center of the discs on a T2 image is normally suggestive of healthy (well hydrated) discs and is normal ...Read more

Mri showed white spots, suspected MS, but spinal tap normal. Neuro says white spots benign, but what exactly causes them?

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

Can white spots on MRI be caused by past trauma, such as falling and hitting head as a child? (Spinal tap normal)

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
