Here is My Question:
Can a solidity T2 hyperintensity be indicative of MS?
Brain T2 hyperintensities, solid or not, are not specific for MS. If they occur in an appropriate clinical context (i.e. appropriate for MS), in the correct brain distribution with several other associated features, then the probability is higher that the T2 hyperintensity supports a diagnosis of MS in that particular case.
