Is there any diagnostic relevance to new T2 hyperintensities on a brain mri? if previous scans have shown nonspecific lesions and there are new, but still nonspecific lesions, is this helpful info for a diagnosis?
I guess the answer depends on who thinks the T2 lesions are non specific. If I felt they were non specific, they would still be non specific on a repeat MRI.
