Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain — one of the most promising and rapidly improving techniques of modern neuroradiology. By magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain physician has an opportunity not only to investigate the structural and pathological changes in brain tissue of the patient, but also to assess the physico-chemical, pathophysiological processes of the brain as a whole or its individual structures, to carry out functional studies of the brain, based on changes in local activity.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of brain also allows you to perform magnetic resonance angiography of the brain that does not require direct puncture of the artery supplying the brain.
MRI diagnosis of brain is prescribed for some of its diseases.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain allows us to obtain a series of thin sections, to construct three-dimensional reconstruction of the study area, highlight the vascular network and even individual nerve trunks passing in the subarachnoid space of the brain.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain allows us to estimate the amount and position of the ventricular system of the brain. On magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain as well visualized and cisterns of the skull base and other spaces containing cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).
MRI diagnosis of brain in the frontal projection is prescribed for some of its diseases.
Such three-dimensional reconstruction of brain tissue with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain provides invaluable assistance to the neurosurgeon in planning the operation and for subsequent post-operative monitoring.
Early diagnosis using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain allows early treatment of the identified patient's disease.
MRI diagnosis of brain in sagittal projection is prescribed for some of its diseases.
The possibility of using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain at the same time to demonstrate the spinal cord and spine during cervical spine without entering the spinal cord in the space of contrast agents, and without the use of ionizing radiation (X-ray) to determine the location and size of tumors, the status of the cervical intervertebral disc spine, intervertebral joints, vertebral bodies.
Currently, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain came out on top in the diagnosis of many diseases of the brain and its vessels, pushing into the background such invasive techniques such as myelography, and giving the patient ionizing radiation as computed tomography (CT).
MRI diagnosis of brain in the axial projection is prescribed for some of its diseases.
In some cases, may appoint a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of brain:
- Anatomy of the nervous system
- Central nervous system infection:
- Brain abscess (lobar, cerebellar)
- Eosinophilic granuloma, Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH), Hennebert's symptom
- Epidural brain abscess
- Sinusitis-associated intracranial complications
- Otogenic intracranial complications
- Sinusitis-associated ophthalmic complications
- Bacterial otogenic meningitis
- Subdural brain abscess
- Sigmoid sinus suppurative thrombophlebitis
- Cerebral 3 ventricle colloid cyst
- Cerebral and spinal adhesive arachnoiditis
- Headache, migraine
- Traumatic brain injury (concussion, contusion, brain hemorrhage, axonal shearing lesions)
- Increased intracranial pressure and hydrocephalus
- Parkinson's disease
- Pituitary microadenoma, macroadenoma and nonfunctioning adenomas (NFPAs), hyperprolactinemia syndrome
- Spontaneous cranial cerebrospinal fluid leak (CSF liquorrhea)
Attention! There are several sub-species or regimes of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain and its vessels, respectively, that must be patient, must be specified in writing in the direction of outpatient map or an extract from the history of the treating physician. Do not try to go through this procedure without first consulting a specialist, so as not to harm your health!
