Structural MRI provides information to qualitatively and quantitatively describe the shape, size, and integrity of gray and white matter structures in the brain. Broadly speaking, MRI signal varies across tissue types because gray matter contains more cell bodies (e.g., neurons and glial cells) than white matter, which is primarily composed of long-range nerve fibers (myelinated […]

MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, is the scanning procedure used in medicine for examining the insides of the human body. The MRI procedure may require a special contrast agent. The contrast agent is required for those images that need finer resolution. In some cases both MRI with contrast and MRI without contrast are performed to […]

Brain tumor is an abnormal and often uncontrolled growth of cells, and takes up space within the cranial cavity (skull). It can compress, shift and/or invade and damage healthy brain tissue and nerves and usually interferes with normal brain function. Tumors can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous), can occur in different parts of the […]

Indications A MRI brain is ordered to look at the structures of the brain and evaluate for the presence of pathology, such as mass/tumor, fluid collection (such as an abcess), ischemic processes (such as a stroke). It is particularly good for hemorrhage, trauma or fracture to the skull and for hydrocephalus. Bone abnormalities Brain mass/tumor […]

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the head uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to produce detailed pictures of the brain and other cranial structures that are clearer and more detailed than other imaging methods. This exam does not use ionizing radiation and may require an injection of a contrast material called […]
