Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Introduction

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive technique used for diagnostic imaging. MRI is particularly useful for the imaging of soft tissues.  It allows for high-quality imaging of the soft tissues with good anatomic detail and offers more sensitivity and specificity.

Indication
  • Ischemia/infarct, Vascular anomalies, hemorrhage, infection, tumors and masses ,Neurodegenerative disorders and dementias, inflammatory conditions, congenital abnormalities, seizures, headaches, cranial neuropathies,
Procedure

The patient is positioned on the MRI table that will move into the MRI scanner. The patient is asked to breath normally and lies in a supine position as still as possible, while the images are being acquired.
