Are white matter hyperintensities and white matter lesions observed in MRI the same thing?

These terms are used more or less synonymously, but note that white matter lesions are hyperintense only in T2 weighting and approx. isointense in T1.

Il vivait. Il mourut quand il n'eut plus son ange;
La chose simplement d'elle-même arriva,
Comme la nuit se fait lorsque le jour s'en va.
