Mri scan white spots

Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan white spots


Avatar f tn Hello I had an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>MRI</span> this week but report being sent to my Dr. I note white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> on my brain just wondering if this could be MS? Photo link
Avatar m tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> and bright white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> mean in either are scanned?
Avatar n tn i HAVE A BULDGinG DISC in MY NECK AND THE <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>MRI</span> SHOWED WHITE <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> ON MY SHOULDER in DIFFERENT PLACES. wHAT ARE THESE?
Avatar n tn give a radiologists impression of whether they were soft or calcified <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span>. White <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> come from neuron firing/stress/depression/hdaches/neuro problems. Why were you there & why were they ordered may help explain.
Avatar n tn Migraine is another cause of white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> in the brain seen on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>MRI</span>. The headache and dizziness could be because of migraine, high BP, low blood sugar, poor eyesight and dehydration. Hope this helps!
Avatar n tn It is difficult to diagnose cancer without direct clinical examination, taking your complete medical history, and reviewing your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>MRI</span>/ CT scan. The white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> 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.
Avatar n tn I took him in for a CT scan which was negative and then an MRI/MRA and I received a phone call saying that white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> showed up on scans. But that they did not look like MS and that MS <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> are normally deeper within the brain matter and that my sons spots where not as deep. He did say that this does happen and that we shouldnt worry, just have annual MRI/MRA's to observe. Is this a normal thing?
Avatar m tn It was suggested that an MRI brain scan should be undertaken (presumably to rule out the remote possibility of a brain tumour). The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>MRI</span> scan was more or less normal - except for some white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> (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".
Avatar m tn I have epilepsy. I did <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>MRI</span> and I found white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> on this image. What's this? On some images I see multiple black holes - what they are means?
1070379 tn?1255313381 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.
Avatar m tn I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>MRI</span> Brain Scan last week . There were 4 to 5 bright <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> 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.
Avatar f tn Hi, It all depends on what he meant by "a spot." If he was referring to a bright spot seen on the T2/FLAIR images, then yes, I have heard of such a thing. I wrote about all in my first journal entry, but when my right leg first stopped working, I saw an arrogant S OB of a neurologist who did an MRI. The radiologist noted that it was normal, but also there was this incidental, UBO, that was mentioned only for the sake of being complete. A UBO is an Unidentified bright Object (Spot).
Avatar n tn she had only one drink and did eat so no hypoglycemia my first thought. second thought seizures?? but her doctor sent her for an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>MRI</span> and it showed 2 white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> on her left frontal lobe. The written report said R/O MS. any thoughts??
Avatar n tn Without examining you, takin your history, and reviewing the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>MRI</span> I cannot make a diagnosis. The white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> 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.
Avatar f tn Went to the doctors they told me that they found white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> on my cerebellum. They ruled out MS, Anurisums, and Cancer does anybody have a idea of what this is?
Avatar m tn This is the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>MRI</span> scan There are numerous T2 and FLAIR hyperintense foci seen in the right periventricular white matter, both cerebral hemispheres white matter more to the right side, corpus callosum and in the left middle cerebellar peduncle, the one in the right periventricular white matter shoes perpendicular orientation to the callososeptal interface, compared to the old MRI (was taken about a year ago), the left cerebral peduncle lesion is more obvious on this exam, no significant interval c
Avatar f tn The MRI report is almost clear. The focus of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>MRI</span> sees to be the Cerebellopontine angle. The few <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> / lesions in the white matter are probably normal or clinically insignificant. Do you have any imbalance or other symptoms ?
Avatar m tn hello hope I can get some help here I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>MRI</span> scan done and it showed that I have 4 white spots on my brain and was told it was nerve pinching brain disease and that he was not to worried about it at the moment but this was over a year ago and I am now starting to struggle with getting my words out can any one shed any light on this for me please thank you for taking time to read this x
Avatar n tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>MRI</span> showed several little white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> 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.
Avatar f tn My question is what else can cause these white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> and are there specific places for the white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> if it is MS? Thank you.
Avatar f tn Concerning your question Hyperintense lesions are bright, white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> shown on certain types of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. They can be found on the brain, spinal cord, and liver among other areas of the body and can be related to multiple sclerosis, dementia, diabeted and simple aging. Hyperintense lesions can also referred to as hyperintense foci, hyperintensities, or bright signals.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have just had multiple tests (again) to try to decipher why I have progressive small fibre neuropathy. Two years ago I had an MRI scan which showed no abnormalities but recently another MRI scan says "MRI scan of brain showed only several smalll foci of non-specific signal change within the subcortical white matter". My question is why are the neurologists not concerned about the change in the MRI in only two years and in your opinion could this be significant.
Avatar n tn Hello kab365, It seems that you have been having multiple problems. How is the blood pressure, since how long have you been taking anti hypertensives? It is unlikely to be MS as it does not co relate with any of your other symptoms.
5335577 tn?1366586521 I'm incredibly afraid of MS and I'm just curious what your thoughts are with these white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> on my brain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>MRI</span>. I had the scan done at 9am and a NS appt at 10, which the Radiologist had already read my scans, the doctor only looked at them to see my cerebellum and post-surgery area, not MS... so I'm just looking for some insight..
Avatar n tn she went to the neurologist and took some test and during a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>MRI</span> test they said there is little white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spots</span> 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????????
