Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

In Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), a magnetic field and radio waves are used to create images of certain parts of the body from a wide variety of angles. MRI has many benefits such as its non-usage of X-rays, painlessness, non-invasive yet powerful and sensitive. It also currently does not have any known side or after effects and can even be used to both diagnose and evaluate various soft tissue related medical conditions.

When is an MRI scan necessary?

For issues concerning soft tissues of the body like the heart, lungs, liver and other organs, MRI scans are recommended as they are able to capture images where X-rays cannot. This can help your specialist evaluate the structure and function of your organs in order to diagnose your condition. MRI scans can diagnose and evaluate conditions such as brain aneurysms or brain tumors and even provide diagnosis to what type of brain lesions may be. For patients who might have suffered a stroke, an MRI scan can determine the location of the blockage or bleeding that may have caused the stroke and can also be used to review any structural causes of epilepsy.

MRI scans provide a safer and non-invasive alternative to X-ray angiography as well for the diagnosis of heart and brain related diseases, soft tissue injuries, joints and spine conditions. The scan also helps plan and prepare our surgeons for certain procedures such as awake craniotomy (brain lesion removal) and deep brain stimulation.
