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
- 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.
