What do brain spots indicate?


Answer by  MattK (1713)

A brain spot usually refers to a lesion in the brain, most often appreciated by MRI, which is more specific as a soft tissue evaluation tool. Spots may be either dark or light, depending on the etiology. A cyst or space would appear dark and a lesion, such as a plaque in MS would appear white.
