MRI of the Head

A doctor or physician may order an MRI scan of the head to take pictures of the brain. An MRI is useful because it shows healthcare providers what tissue is normal, and what tissue is not. Much can be discovered during a quality MRI of the brain.

A head MRI scan of the head does not use radiation, but rather uses powerful magnets and radio waves to create pictures of the brain and surrounding nerve tissues.

A quality MRI scan can show radiologists what may be causing your signs and symptoms and it’s important that you find the best machines and radiologists possible to receive the best imaging.

Reasons for a Head MRI:

A head MRI scan may be done to check for certain cancers or other illness. The MRI may show tissue that has cancer cells and tissue that does not have cancer cells.

A head MRI can be used to guide doctors or surgeons during a procedure, such as a biopsy. An MRI scan may be used if surgery is needed to remove a growth or lump.

A MRI scan of the head can show healthcare providers how well a treatment for a disease is working and the results of a quality MRI scan can help in the plan for the best treatment forward.

A Head MRI may help diagnose (find):

A MRI of the head and brain can be used to diagnose and monitor multiple diseases and disorders including birth defects, bleeding in the brain, brain infections, brain tumors and hormonal disorders.

A MRI of the brain can also allow physicians to diagnose multiple sclerosis, a stroke, dementia, damage to the brain from injury, or structural problems in the brain, blood vessels or pituitary gland.

A head and brain MRI scan can also help healthcare providers find the cause of hearing loss, headaches, speech impediments, visions problems, or muscle weakness.
