I recently asked for your opinion about my MRI report. Thanks for the interpretation and suggestions.
I am just curious about the bright white circles that appear in the centre of these images. While not serious, I am curious what is the anatomical structure that is causing these white circles.

Thanks for posting your query.
The white circle is Aorta. That is a major blood carrying vessel - carrying blood from the heart to various parts of the body.

I hope that answers your question.
