a question about cat scans and drugs

Hi, I was just wondering if anyone here happens to know if damage to the brain from using drugs would show up on a cat scan? thanks.

Or maybe it's called an MRI not a cat scan.

An mri will show white matter in your grey matter but I'm not sure how much can really be seen.I am told though that an MRI has a better,more clear picture than a CT scan
