Plaques. Are these lesions?

Hello My mri scan results say new plaques since last scan. Is this the same as lesions? Thanks Katy

Yes I think a plaque is a lesion.

Thank you.

Yes, a plaque = a lesion. They need to be described as demyelinating for MS though… the language used is infuriating. Similarly, a ‘flare’ is often interchangeable with relapse. But not always, it depends who says it and what they intend by it!
