Useful information


In neurology, radiological examinations play an important role in the diagnosis of neurological diseases. There are several radiological methods used in neurology, including:

  1. Computed tomography (CT): This is a commonly used method that creates X-ray-based images of the brain and other parts of the body. It is particularly useful in identifying damage to the skull, tumors, hemorrhages, and other changes in the brain.

  2. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI): MRI is a cutting-edge technique that provides very detailed images of the brain and other parts of the body. It can be helpful in identifying changes in the brain such as inflammation, tumors, multiple sclerosis, stroke, and other conditions.

  3. Angiography: This is a method in which contrast dye is injected into the blood vessels to detect changes in the vessels that can cause disorders in the brain.

  4. Positron Emission Tomography (PET): PET is an imaging technique that helps detect biochemical changes in the brain. It can be helpful in diagnosing Alzheimer's dementia and other neurological disorders.

  5. Functional imaging (fMRI): This is a technique used to track changes in brain activity when performing specific tasks.

It is important to note that none of these methods alone can make a diagnosis. A thorough medical history, physical exam, and other tests are also required to make a definitive diagnosis. The choice of the most appropriate radiological method depends on the specific neurological disease and the needs of the patient.
