Hi
I received my Brain MRI Results and to be brief it states Several Tiny White Matter Lesions consonant with Demylination/Gliosis.
I actually was able to pick up my report before the Nuerologist received it. What does this result mean?

It might mean absolutely nothing. Demylination can happen as you age...

It also happens in certain neurological disorders; however the fact that it says several tiny, does not sound off any alarms...I have MS, my MRIs say large clusters of white matter...

Your best bet is to call your neuro and ask them to let you know what this means,

Imaging studies need to be interpreted by your MD provider. I think it's not a good practice to release results to the patient--your MD will put the results in context for you and your clinical condition.
