Diagnosing Life-Threatening Brain Conditions

Magnetic resonance imaging is used in radiology to see pictures of specific anatomy of your body. In some cases, the found results and images produced by an MRI can be a lifesaver - especially when it involves your brain.

MRI of your brain may be ordered by your doctor to determine a diagnosis of a life-threatening brain condition that requires immediate medical attention. MRI may show the impacts of trauma from an injury, tumors, cysts, brain swelling, bleeding, and other potentially serious conditions. MRI can provide clear images of the brain that can't be seen well with an X-ray, ultrasound, or CAT scan.

An MRI is used to detect life-threatening brain conditions like :

  • Stroke
  • Blood Clots and Blockages
  • Cysts and Tumors
  • Changes in the Brain
  • Brain Infections
  • Conditions like epilepsy and MS
  • Aneurysms
  • Degenerative Diseases

An MRI can provide early detection of serious conditions that could save your life. If you experience symptoms such as extreme or chronic headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, weakness, or changes in behavior, an MRI study is recommended.
