From what I've learned over the past two months of dealing with my undiagnosed symptoms, only an MRI can show the white spots (lesions).  Here's a great layman's link on MS and the tests:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiple_sclerosis  

There are other tests that need to be run too, probably a LP (lumbar puncture - don't worry, it's not as bad as it sounds) and some neurological exams.

Good luck
