Why book a/an MRI Scan Brain test?
MRI scan brain test is used to examine the brain or the spinal cord, which is connected with the brain. This test is done to find any injury or presence of structural abnormalities and certain other conditions, which are-
- Congenital abnormalities
- Degeneration of discs of the spinal cord or herniation
- Planning for spinal surgeries, like decompression of a pinched nerve or spinal fusion

MRI Scan is a painless, non-invasive, and safe imaging test. If you detect symptoms such as chronic headaches, dizziness, weakness, blurry vision, or seizures, you should consult your doctor. Your doctor will recommend you the MRI scan test. It uses radio waves or magnetic waves to form dimensional and precise images of the brain. By studying the brain’s anatomy, your radiologists or doctor can detect diseases associated with the brain or spine. The MRI scan is conducted to evaluate the brain and know the cause of persistent headaches. The test can effectively determine if a shunt is working or not. Not only for the brain, but MRI scans are also conducted to detect abnormalities with the heart, such as blocked vessels or arteries. It can detect tumors in other organs as well.
