What are some common uses for Head MRI’s and Brain MRI’s?

MR imaging of the head is performed for a number of abrupt onset or long-standing symptoms. It can help diagnose conditions such as:

  • Brain tumors
  • Stroke
  • Infections
  • Developmental anomalies
  • Hydrocephalus — dilatation of fluid spaces within the brain (ventricles)
  • Causes of epilepsy (seizure)
  • Hemorrhage in selected trauma patients
  • Certain chronic conditions, such as multiple sclerosis
  • Disorders of the eye and inner ear
  • Disorders of pituitary gland
  • Vascular problems, such as an aneurysm (a bubble-like expansion of the vessel), arterial occlusion (blockage) or venous thrombosis (a blood clot within a vein)
  • Brain abnormalities in patients with dementia, a disorder that can cause confusion or memory loss.
  • MRI and CT scans are recommended after a concussion only if a more serious brain injury is suspected, or if symptoms do not clear within the first 7 to 10 days.
