T1 hyperintensities on basal ganglia may be seen due to calcium, methaemoglobin, or copper deposit, or may be secondary to hepatic failure, carbon monoxide poisoning, an infarct (dead tissue due to no oxygen or blood supply) or uncontrolled diabetes or infections like Japanese encephalitis.
T2 hyperintensities or white spots on basal ganglia are seen in ischaemia (no oxygen or blood supply), lymphoma or due to clots in veins.

Hypoglycemia and methanol poisoning are the other causes.
