What cases need magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain?

1. What is an MRI scan?

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a technique commonly used in medical diagnostics to create anatomical images of the body using magnetic fields and radio waves. This method is safe for patients, does not use X-rays like X-rays, with high accuracy, so it is trusted by doctors to diagnose diseases, including brain diseases such as cerebral vascular malformations.
Modern magnetic resonance imaging method is increasingly proving effective and popular all over the world. Today, MRI is used to diagnose nearly every organ in the body.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) images with very high contrast, detail, sharpness, clarity, good anatomy and ability to create 3D are very good support for disease diagnosis for pathologies from simple to complex . In many cases, the diagnostic efficiency of MRI is much better than that of long-standing diagnostic methods such as ultrasound, X-ray, CT scan...

2. Why brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)?

MRI can detect a variety of brain conditions such as cysts, tumors, hemorrhage, edema, structural or developmental abnormalities, infections, inflammatory conditions, or other conditions. blood vessel problems. It can identify arteriovenous shunts (shunts) and detect brain damage from trauma or stroke.
Brain MRI can be helpful in evaluating other problems such as persistent headaches, dizziness, muscle weakness or paralysis, impaired vision (blurred vision) or seizures, and it can help detect medical conditions. chronic nervous system problems, such as multiple sclerosis or multiple sclerosis.

In some cases, magnetic resonance imaging can provide clear images of brain parenchymal components that cannot be clearly seen on X-rays, CT scans, or ultrasounds, which makes MR imaging difficult. It is of particular value in the diagnosis of pituitary and brain stem diseases.

3. Who needs a cranial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan?

3.1 People with the following symptoms should have cranial magnetic resonance imaging. It is recommended to consult a specialist about cranial MRI when having the following symptoms:
Dizziness for a long time does not improve Persistent headache with varying degrees of pain, migraine or whole head, dull or sharp pain...

Loss sleeping often, not sleeping deeply, having difficulty in falling asleep, or waking up early and not being able to fall back to sleep... Hemiplegia, the body is so weak that it is difficult to grasp, difficulty in movement, sensory disturbances, or food loss 1 side... Visibility markedly reduced or pain on one side Distorted mouth, distorted face, difficulty speaking or hearing Stiff neck, vomiting, convulsions, seizures

3.2 Pathological cases requiring cranial magnetic resonance imaging Some of the following cases need cranial magnetic resonance imaging to detect internal pathology:
Traumatic brain injury Cranial nerve tumor, brain tumor Cerebral infarction, cerebral hemorrhage, cerebrovascular accident Meningitis, encephalitis Cerebral vascular malformation, cerebrovascular disease, neuro-vascular conflict Congenital brain defects: brain defects, brain atrophy ... Multiple sclerosis, white matter degeneration Follow-up after brain surgery. 3.3 Contraindications to MRI of the brain Patients with pacemakers (absolute contraindications) In people with magnetic metals (relative contraindications) People with photophobia, Fear of lying alone Inability to lie still

4. Brain MRI at Vinmec
