Brain MRI at the Newcastle Clinic

MRI provides detailed pictures of the brain and nerve tissues.

A brain MRI can be used to diagnose many disorders and diseases that affect the brain. These can include:

  • Birth brain defects
  • Bleeding in the brain (subarachnoid or intracranial hemorrhage, vascular disease)
  • Brain infections
  • Brain tumor
  • Hormonal disorders
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Stroke

An MRI scan of the brain can also determine causes of:

  • Muscle weakness or numbness and tingling
  • Loss of sense of smell
  • Change in behaviour
  • Changes in thinking
  • Hearing loss
  • Headaches when certain other symptoms or signs are present
  • Speaking problems
  • Visual problems

A special type of MRI scan called Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA) may be done to look at blood vessels in the brain and neck.

A sequence called diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) can also be done to detect stroke and vascular problems.
