Overview

MRI Diffusion Studies Brain is diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging of the brain. The procedure uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves and advanced computer software that diffuses water molecules to produce MRI images of the brain. (1)

What is MRI Diffusion Studies Brain?

MRI Diffusion Studies Brain is used to map the diffusion process of water molecules in the brain, to reveal microscopic details of tissue architecture. MRI Diffusion Studies Brain is helpful to evaluate the white matter pathways in the brain for performing complex brain surgeries and for brain mapping studies. (1)

How is MRI Diffusion Studies Brain Performed?

MRI Diffusion Studies Brain is a non-invasive test.

  • Patients have to lie down on the MRI examination tabl
  • Coils are placed around the head to improve the quality of the images.
  • The table will slowly slide inside the magnetic field of the MRI scanner, which produces clear images of the white matter pathways in the brain, using diffusion studies. The images are produced using multiple sequences.
  • MRI Diffusion Studies Brain lasts for anywhere between 60 to 90 minutes. (2)

The patient has to lie still during the MRI Diffusion Studies Brain test as any sort of movement will blur the images.

Side-effects of MRI Diffusion Studies Brain

MRI Diffusion Studies Brain is a safe procedure as it does not use any type of radiation.

  • Patients may feel discomfort because of lying still throughout the test.
  • Some body implants with metal parts may malfunction during the MRI Diffusion Studies Brain test.

Preparations before Performing MRI Diffusion Studies Brain

MRI Diffusion Studies Brain is a quick and painless test.

  • Inform the doctor about any allergies, medical records, implants, and other health complications.
  • Avoid consuming caffeinated drinks before the MRI Diffusion Studies Brain test

Post-care of MRI Diffusion Studies Brain

MRI Diffusion Studies Brain is an effective method to detect brain disorders and plan surgeries.

  • Patients who are administered sedation are kept under observation for a few hours after the test.
  • Report any pain or discomfort after MRI Diffusion Studies Brain, to the doctor.
