Hi there.

these white spots may be focal degenerative changes that can be due to demyelination, or conditions such as ALS.  There can also be cyst formation in this area.  The important thing is to correlate these changes with the symptoms that you may be experiencing.  Spine operations may be warranted if ever these changes causes significant symptoms.

Regards.
