Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is increasingly being used in the diagnosis and management of acute ischemic stroke and is sensitive and relatively specific in detecting changes that occur after such strokes. Advances in MRI include higher strength of magnetic field (1.5-3.0 T field strength) yielding better resolution of images, newer sequences of images, and the […]

Metastasis to the brain is the most feared complication of systemic cancer and the most common intracranial tumor in adults. The incidence of brain metastasis is rising with the increase in survival of cancer patients. Currently, cancer patients live longer as a result of important advances in cancer diagnosis and management, and in particular, the […]

Difficulty walking, blurred vision, slurred speech, slowed reaction times, impaired memory: Clearly, alcohol affects the brain. Some of these impairments are detectable after only one or two drinks and quickly resolve when drinking stops. On the other hand, a person who drinks heavily over a long period of time may have brain deficits that persist […]

MS is a chronic disease that damages the nerves in the spinal cord and brain, as well as the optic nerves. Sclerosis means scarring, and people with MS develop multiple areas of scar tissue in response to the nerve damage. Depending on where the damage occurs, symptoms may include problems with muscle control, balance, vision, […]

You may be asked not to eat or drink anything for 4 to 6 hours before the scan. Tell your doctor if you are afraid of close spaces (have claustrophobia). You may receive medicine to help you feel sleepy and less anxious. Or your doctor may suggest an “open” MRI, in which the machine is […]

Imaging plays a crucial role in the management of patients with brain tumors. The technical improvement of computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MRI) with the development of, new imaging techniques strongly improved the detection and characterization of brain tumors. For the optimal therapeutic management of the oncologic patient not only the recognition of the […]

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain is useful in the diagnosis and treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS), an inflammatory, demyelinating condition of the central nervous system (CNS) that is generally considered to be autoimmune in nature. White matter tracts are affected, including those of the cerebral hemispheres, infratentorium, and spinal cord. MS lesions, known […]

A brain tumor is a group of abnormal cells that grows in or around the brain. Brain tumors are malignant (also called brain cancer) or benign (do not contain cancer cells). They may be primary (beginning within the brain) or metastatic (cancer cells elsewhere in the body travel to the brain). Your doctor may order […]

An aneurysm is often diagnosed using a variety of imaging equipment. Whether someone was brought to the hospital unconscious from a rupture or is seeking treatment for symptoms of an unruptured aneurysm, similar detection methods are used to pinpoint the location, size, type, and any other characteristics of the aneurysm that will help the doctors […]

Clinical presentation is nonspecific with many cases having no convincing inflammatory or septic symptoms. Symptoms of raised intracranial pressure, seizures and focal neurological deficits are most common forms of presentation. Eventually many abscesses rupture into ventricular system, which results in a sudden and dramatic worsening of the clinical presentation and often heralds a poor outcome.
