Have you ever wondered what’s inside your brain? Doctors now have robust and accurate tools to diagnose disease with imaging studies. Physicians can help diagnose and confirm neurological disorders and other medical conditions by looking at images of your brain.
Imaging studies provide high-resolution images that visualize brain activity, brain changes, and a direct view of the brain's structure. Technological advances in imaging allow physicians to see inside the body with these tests:
MRI: MRI uses computer-generated radio waves and a powerful magnetic field to produce detailed images of body tissues, bones, and organs. MRI diagnoses Multiple Sclerosis (MS), stroke, tumors, aneurysms, abscesses, congenital abnormalities, hydrocephalus, and many others conditions.
MRA: MRA is a non-invasive evaluation of blood flow through arteries. MRA can also detect aneurysms and other blood vessel abnormalities within the brain, spinal cord, or other body parts.
CT: A CT scan is a medical diagnostic procedure that uses nuclear radiation and x-ray technologies to create highly detailed body images. CT scans are ideal for a clear diagnostic picture of the whole brain and specific organs and other structures in the body.
X-Ray: X-Ray uses invisible electromagnetic energy to make images of the skull. X-rays can diagnose many conditions, including tumors and infections that may cause neurological issues.
An imaging test is crucial for confirming neurological disorders. If a condition such as a brain injury, aneurysm, stroke, epilepsy, or a brain tumor is suspected, a radiologist or technologist can assist your physician with an imaging scan to gather information for the correct diagnosis.
