Never heard of this before.  An internet search turned it up under "white spots in the brain."

If you tend to "catastrophize" (Catastrophizing is an irrational thought a lot of us have in believing that something is far worse than it actually is---internet), I would avoid trying to diagnose this via the internet.

Apparently, this can be simply a sign of an internal issue that your body has resolved, or be a sign of a more serious condition---and the problem is that "differential diagnosis" is somewhat difficult.

Best of luck

Agreed, Cheryl. I don't understand why this question was not posed to the physician who ordered the test.

I did read a few articles when I searched the issue. A problem is that a definitive diagnosis apparently takes time to develop as symptoms of whatever it may be progress.

Apparently doctors can't narrow the diagnosis quickly with any standardized tests.
