White Spots On Brain Mri What Are They
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.

I really would have to see the images to give you an answer. ...Read more
Probably normal: Grey spots on the sclera (white of the eye) are usually areas of thinning of the eye wall, which is common with age. This thinning allows the pigmented tissues beneath the sclera to show through, which gives this grey appearance. However, areas of increased pigmentation (usually brown or black) can indicate a risk for cancer or pre-cancer on the surface of the eye, so get an eye exam to be sure. ...Read more

Two small white matter lesions on brain that do not enhance with contrast. They weren't present on an MRI from 2014. What can this be??

What does my mri results mean by there are a few scattered patchy t2/flair hyperintense lesions in both deep and superficial subcortical white matter?
