mri-scan

I was told that they found alot of white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spot</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the left and right sides of my brain.Right now at this time my doctor does'nt know what it could be,at least that's what he told me.So could you please tell me somethings that could be causing this,I would appreciate any info you could provide me with.
i have migrain and my last <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> show little white specks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the right side of my bra<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>. Lately the headaches have been on the right side of my head. Do i need to worry about any brain disorder?
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'>spot</span>s in my bra<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>. 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spot</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the bra<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 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.
I also have had bad headaches (migraines) and white spots were found <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> a ct <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span> and then later <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> a follow up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span>. My neurologist said they were from the migraines. I have my doubts but at this point I haved no other answers. I have always received some relief using imitrex for my headaches.But when they got worse I used Topamax which helped alot, just research because of some side effects that could be serious. Prayer also was the biggest help.
My test showed (mri, CT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span>) that I have white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spot</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my bra<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>. 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?
The other day i was talkin to a friend and I zoned out and started talking about something completely different, then zoned back again and thought hang <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>....what have i just done.... Anyway I did this infront of the doctor and he ordered a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span>....and when it came back they said that it showed white spots that a woman of my age (36) should not have....and have referred me to neurologist who I see next week.....but Im worried sick....do I have MS or what else could it be?
Migraine is another cause of white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spot</span>s in the bra<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> seen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> <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!
I had a seizer and went to the er. I have had an abnormal CT and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> bra<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span>. 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.
I had a bra<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> done and they found a lesion <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my bra<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>. 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.
Nothing showed up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> scans of the sinuses so specialist ordered <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> to explore further I saw the white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spot</span>s and got me curious I much rather know whats what and when I saw the spots I thought Id try and do some research Jensequitur where on the pic is a lesion in the cerebellum ?
Hello all, I am a 42 year old sedentary professional, overweight, hypothyroid for many years. For severalyears had been having strange sensation in chest like an elevator dropping. Cardiovacular tests unremarkable except for low stamina. About four years ago, after about two years of incredible stress levels I alway thought I managed well, I began having what were diagnosed as anxiety attacks, mainly related to sitting in traffic.
had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> last week of pelvic area and lower back, got a copy of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> a disc and took a look of it and was wondering what black spots and bright white spots mean in either are scanned?
It was suggested that an mri brain scan should be undertaken (presumably to rule out the remote possibility of a bra<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> tumour). The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span> was more or less normal - except for some white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spot</span>s (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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spot</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> a 29 year old females bra<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> 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.
Bra<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>- 3 non-specific white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spot</span>s (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.
Earlier this week, my wife had accidently hit her head on the snack bar of our home. This resulted in her being "knocked" unconsious for a very short amount of time. After this incident she was seen by our family doctor who had indicated if she started feeling nauseauous or if she continued to have headaches for the next week to call and she would be scheduled for an Cat scan. During the course of the week she had several headaches that were light to mild in nature.

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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span>/ CT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span>. The white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spot</span>s in the bra<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 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 have epilepsy. I did <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> and I found white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spot</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> this image. What's this? http://img607.imageshack.us/i/25069127.png/ on some images I see multiple black holes - what they are means?
However I will try to provide you with some useful information. There are multiple reasons to have white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spot</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span>. 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.
my name is marina, live in canada, and as well was told I have a lot of whites <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spot</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the bra<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> I had an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> done and that is what is showed although the doctor feels it could be because of my age (53) i also have tingling in my hands and thighs and feet, could this be ms. The doctor said to wait for 3 months and do a nother mri and if the test come back with more white spots then we will know that is could be progressive ms.
thanks, that is helpful. Why did you get the mri in the first place? From what I understand, a diagnosis of MS is just made based on a collection of symptoms or conditions correlated with those symptoms. -in other words, there is no definiton of the disease, like "presence of XYZ virus". Are White spots on the Spinal Cord and Brain mri's definitely indicative of demyelination? or could other factors cause inflamation of those areas and create white spots on the mri?
I'm not sure about the white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spot</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the bra<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>. I did a bit of quick research and I find that they are common, but investigation should be done to find a cause for them. Is there follow up scheduled to determine what might be causing them?
I finally got an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> of my bra<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> (that was pure tourcher btw)! Now my appt is 3 weeks away, so here I am looking over the scans and wondering. If there was something 'wrong' I assume it would be obvious? I don't see any gray or white spots or areas or large dark masses. I did see one tiny white spec, but it doesn't show on all the scans and one vein thats very squiggly looking, other then that it seems normal to me (comparing pictures of a normal scan). Any thoughts on this?
I'm incredibly afraid of MS and I'm just curious what your thoughts are with these white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spot</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my bra<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span>. I had the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span> 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..
