Info on characteristics of brain lesions

Not sure whether this Web page has been posted previously, but I ran across it while looking for info on small vessel ischemic disease. It talks about how various types of lesions (due to MS, migraine, etc. etc.) look on MRI. So many ways for the brain to dysfunction! :)

Unfortunately, there are some bullet boxes on the right hand side that hide part of the text, but you can still see most of it.

P.S. I never try to interpret my own MRI, but for us nonspecialists, articles like this at least give some perspective on how complicated such interpretation can be and why certain diagnoses may or may not be made. Good luck with your MRI, Victoria!
