Brain and spine MRI scans give reliable scanning results of the brain and the spinal cord. When it comes to diagnostic accuracy, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the most recommended procedure since it delivers the finest details of the scanned body parts.
Identify Your Specific Spinal Complaints
The spinal cord is the major part of the central nervous system; any damage to it will surely affect the proper functioning of the body. An MRI scan is the preferred method to identify any specific disorder of this body part. The examination spans the entire spinal region including the cervical spine, thoracic spine and the lumbar spine. MRI scans of the spine help to find out disorders such as arthritis, stenosis, disc herniations, spondylitis, tumors and spinal infections.
MRI Brain Scan for Detailed Analysis of Disorders of the Brain
The brain scanning procedure may vary in different patients depending on their particular health condition. Whether it is a tumor, inflammatory lesion, meningitis, Alzheimer’s disease or hydrocephaly, most dysfunctions can be traced with a brain MRI. Brain scans produce clear cross sectional images of the brain for detailed study. You can get these images projected on a computer and printed on a film. With the unique coil and permanent magnet design of the machine, you are assured of visual precision for the images scanned.
MRI Scan Facilities and Service Providers
New developments in magnetic resonance technology have introduced a number of positive improvements in this service area. The AIRIS II MRI scanner machine we utilize puts the patients at ease. These machines feature open-air gantry that allow the patients access from different sides. Professionally qualified and experienced radiologists in the accredited facility will assist you throughout the scanning process.
Brain and spine MRI scan is extremely accurate and painless, and is useful to detect many abnormalities, especially those associated with soft tissues which cannot be detected with CT scanning and X-rays.
