Diagnosing Conditions With Neuroradiology

Neuroradiology is a subspecialty of radiology that uses imaging techniques to diagnose and monitor neurological conditions. It’s a field that focuses on the nervous system, which includes the brain, spinal cord, and nerve pathways throughout your body.

At Smart Scan, we use MRI scans to help diagnose the root causes of a multitude of conditions and assist your healthcare provider in establishing which type of treatment you need. Neuroradiology can be used to diagnose a wide range of neurological conditions such as:

  • Stroke: MRI scans can help detect injury or bleeding in the brain, as well as areas that have been affected by the stroke.
  • Multiple Sclerosis: MRI scans provide detailed images of the brain and spinal cord, which can be used to identify lesions associated with multiple sclerosis.
  • Brain tumors: MRI scans can be used to detect abnormal growths in the brain, as well as areas of swelling or edema that may indicate a tumor.
  • Spinal cord issues: MRI scans can help diagnose spinal cord injury or abnormalities, as well as narrowing of the spine.
  • Nerve injuries: MRI scans provide detailed images of tissue that can indicate nerve damage caused by trauma or other conditions.
  • Epilepsy and seizures: MRI scans can help identify areas of the brain where seizures originate.

MRI scans can also provide us with valuable information about conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other degenerative diseases that affect the nervous system.
