What Symptoms Warrant an MRI Brain Scan?

What Symptoms Warrant an MRI Brain Scan?

A MRI brain scan may be needed if a patient has unexplained symptoms that could be caused by neurological conditions and neurodegenerative diseases. They are also used to monitor existing medical conditions that affect the brain. MRI brain scans allow doctors to view the brain without having to perform surgery. MRI brain scans can reveal various diseases such as Alzheimer’s Disease, Epilepsy, Traumatic Brain Injury, and Multiple Sclerosis.

What Happens if You Move During an MRI Brain Scan?

Too much movement during an MRI brain scan could make the images blurry and unclear, which could result in the need for the images to be retaken and the process to be restarted. If the images are unclear, they can’t be used and the process will need to be redone because body structures could be misrepresented, and important details could be unclear. If you are claustrophobic, you can ask about being sedated or receiving a holder to keep your head from moving and disrupting the image.
