Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)  

Non-invasive imaging using magnetic fields


MRI Brain is a diagnostic procedure that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to generate detailed images of the brain and surrounding structures. It provides valuable information about the structure and potential abnormalities within the brain.

  • There are several reasons why an MRI Brain may be recommended:

    1. Evaluation of neurological conditions: MRI Brain can help to diagnose and evaluate various neurological conditions, including brain tumors, stroke, multiple sclerosis, infections, vascular malformations, and degenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s disease.
    2. Assessment of head trauma: Following a head injury, MRI Brain can provide detailed images to assess for any bleeding, brain edema, or other traumatic brain injuries.
    3. Monitoring of treatment progress: For individuals with known brain conditions, such as tumors or multiple sclerosis, regular MRI Brain scans may be performed to monitor the effectiveness of treatment and detect any changes or progression of the condition.
  • The preparation for MRI Brain typically involves:

    1. Metal removal: Before the scan, you will be asked to remove all metallic objects, including jewelry, hairpins, eyeglasses, watches, and any other items that may interfere with the magnetic field. Metal can cause artifacts on the images and pose a safety risk.
    2. Clothing: You may be required to change into a hospital gown or clothing without metal zippers, buttons, or snaps. This ensures that no metal objects are present during the scan.
    3. Medical history and screening: You will be asked to provide a detailed medical history, including any previous surgeries, implants, or medical conditions. It’s essential to inform the healthcare provider if you have any metallic implants, such as pacemakers, defibrillators, or cochlear implants, as these may be contraindications for MRI.
    4. Contrast agent: In some cases, a contrast agent may be used during the MRI Brain scan to enhance the visualization of certain structures or abnormalities. If a contrast agent is required, you may be asked to fast for a few hours before the scan, especially if you have a history of kidney problems. Additionally, inform the healthcare provider if you have any allergies or adverse reactions to contrast agents.


    It’s important to follow all the instructions provided by your healthcare provider or the imaging center for a successful and safe MRI Brain scan. If you have any specific concerns or questions, it’s best to consult with your healthcare provider or the imaging center prior to the procedure.
