Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan brain white spots

mri-scan

I had a seizer and went to the er. I have had an abnormal CT and MRI brain scan. There was white spots in my limphnods and a "weird" spot in my left frontel "white matter". The doc's said its not a tipical MS spot or toumer. I had blurred vission in my right eye for about 10-12 hours. I've had a headake since it happened on Sep 28. The doc's couldnt get a reflex in my right leg and ankel. I have slowed movement slightly in my right arm/hand/leg/foot.
It was late onset as I had my first seizure in 1999 and have had only 1 other one since. I am taking Dilantin (260mg). Well, the MRI showed several little white spots in my brain. My neurologist suggest they could be calcium deposits (can't find anything on line about this) so I had blood taken and she is looking for an infection that may have been present. I also have sleep apnea, diagnosed at the same time as the epilepsy.
The CT Scan came out normal, mra was ok, the Eco Cardio was perfect, but the Mri showed the white spots on the brain for the second time. I have to see a neurologist again and the last time said there was not problem. Currently I do have spurs on my heel and achelies tendons. Can this be MS or something that the doctors are not seeing? This hospital was my 3rd mini-stroke. I do have high blood pressure and do take medication for that. I need answers that the doctors here cannot give me.
White spots appearing on an MRI scan for an 18 year old, with severe stomach problems.
she went to the neurologist and took some test and during a mri test they said there is little white spots in my moms head. What could the white spots mean? what is the cause of it and how can she stop having these bad headackes????????
My test showed (MRI, CT SCAN) that I have white spots on my brain. The Dr. said they are cause by my cholesteral being high 198 trigleserides. I'm trying to understand can this have been caused by something else and why did my vision disappear? Is it really because of my trigleserides being high?
Hello I had an MRI this week but report being sent to my Dr. I note white spots on my brain just wondering if this could be MS? Photo link http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff168/kjl07/Osteoarthritis/IMG_3065.
had a mri last week of pelvic area and lower back, got a copy of the mri on a disc and took a look of it and was wondering what black spots and bright white spots mean in either are scanned?
Migraine is another cause of white spots in the brain seen on MRI. The headache and dizziness could be because of migraine, high BP, low blood sugar, poor eyesight and dehydration. Hope this helps!
When my mother went to treat her ear infection due to hole in the ear (that was supposed to be operated next week), doc did CT scan and found couple of white spots on Brain & skull. They suspected it to be metastasis & suspect the cancer may be in advance stage. They have advised to take MRI, bone/blood tests, the results are awaited. They did check kidney, uterus which are clear.
It is difficult to diagnose cancer without direct clinical examination, taking your complete medical history, and reviewing your MRI/ CT scan. The white spots in the brain may indicate old age or areas which have been damaged.Other tests may need to be done such as visual evoked potential, spinal tap with analysis of the fluid, and other blood tests. If you have them also on your lungs, have this evaluated further for proper management. Take care and keep us posted.
I had a brain MRI done and they found a lesion on my brain. I have seen a neurologist and had a spinal tap done. The neurologist said all levels were normal and we also did a CTA scan of the brain and he said that was normal. I have not had any symptoms of MS and now I am left wondering WTF is this spot and what could have caused it?....The neurologist said if I develop any symptoms we can look at it again or maybe I should do another spinal tap done in a year.
I had severe neurological symptoms amd a acute attack or something! My first MRI brain scan without contrast revealed High signal intensity in the white matter in both frontal lobes and cerebellum, also my sinus was noted and slight vascular change, all non specific.
It was suggested that an MRI brain scan should be undertaken (presumably to rule out the remote possibility of a brain tumour). The MRI scan was more or less normal - except for some white spots (perhaps 10-20 on one of the "scan pictures") each measuring ~1 mm x 2 mm. The neurologist commented that these white spots probably arose from "exhausted/thrombosed blood vessels".
Just would like to know if some white spots on a 29 year old females brain MRI is ok? Never had migraines and no other past medical hx. Was told by neuro that some peeps just have them. It still baffles me with all my symptoms how they can't all be connected. Been told not MS. Just worried it could turn out to be a stroke for me for the future or something eles.
Brain- 3 non-specific white spots (focci?) abnormal white matter signal, which could be caused by migranes, trauma, inflamation, and fluid was seen. Neck: Stenosis, narrow cannel, Osteoscites (outgrowth) C3-C4-C6 I am terrified and dont want to feel this way anymore and I am unsure why all if this is happening. Any causes or info you can give me is greatly appriciated.
He sent me for a cat scan to ensure I didn't brusie/injure my brain. The results- white areas on the frontal lobes of my brain. He wants me to take an MRI to ensure it's not MS, the cause of my original muscle weakness in my legs. I am 60 now and in good health, albeit on 4mg steroids every day. Can someone PLEASE tell me if I am symptomatci for MS - the mobility problem in my legs when not on steroids?
I had a MRI Brain Scan last week . There were 4 to 5 Bright spots in the SCAN Dr. told me nothing to worry. White spots , sometimes termed as UWFO : " Un-identified White Flying Objects " First she told me , I must have gone through few micro second strokes. But my ECG , ECO , All Blood reports Normal . No Sugar / No Collastrol / No BP . Looking at Flickering of my left hand Fingers and bit rigidity in my left arm , Dr.
However I will try to provide you with some useful information. There are multiple reasons to have white spots on an MRI. To name a few, these include demyelinating disease such as multiple sclerosis, vasculitis (inflammation of the blood vessels), headaches/migraines, and combination of factors as we age including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, and diabetes. It is important to interpret the white matter changes with the clinical history and examination.
I have epilepsy. I did MRI and I found white spots on this image. What's this? http://img607.imageshack.us/i/25069127.png/ On some images I see multiple black holes - what they are means?
I had the original mri about 8 weeks ago and found the white spots. I just a few days ago had an mri with contrast and they say is came back okay. We are now waiting to set up an MRA of the neck and brain. The ringing in my ears is better now and the pain in my ears is on the outside of my earsm, mostly on the top of the ear. Kind of hard to explain but where the ear is connected to the head.
Went to the doctors they told me that they found white spots on my cerebellum. They ruled out MS, Anurisums, and Cancer does anybody have a idea of what this is?
Without examining you, takin your history, and reviewing the MRI I cannot make a diagnosis. The white spots in the brain indicate areas which have been damaged. If the MRI was not done with contrast, it may be helpful. The visual evoked potential is another method to detect damage to the white matter of the brain. Another test which may need to be performed is a spinal tap with analysis of the fluid.
White spots on a brain scan can be from several different factors: *A natural phenomenon of the brain due to the coating of axon nerve fibers with myelin *Hardening of small arteries in the brain from high blood pressure, causing a buildup of fluid *Early onset of a stroke or another neurological condition eg: MS, lyme's disease, lupus *Vitamin B12 deficiency - leads to demyelination *Migrane *Brain injury *Infectious diseases that have occurred in the past *Celiac's disease ***
