Imaging for Neurological Diagnosis
New advances in imaging technology allow physicians to detect many neurological conditions early for a more accurate diagnosis and more treatment options.
Our radiology department uses state-of-the-art neurological imaging technology including:
- Computed tomography (CT)
A CT scan rapidly acquires X-ray images to create cross-sectional images of the brain.
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
An MRI uses a powerful magnet combined with low-intensity radio waves and computer technology to create detailed images of the soft tissue in the body.
This procedure uses contrast dye and X-rays to monitor how blood flows through the brain. Select locations offer bi-plane angiography, which takes highly detailed images that allow a physician to see tiny blood vessels within the brain.
- Magnetoencephalography (MEG)
An MEG is a non-invasive imaging technique that measures the electrical activity in the brain. This technology can be used to evaluate patients with , abnormalities in the vascular structures in the brain and other conditions that require intracranial surgery.
