Neuroradiology Central Nervous System Imaging and Diagnosis
Neuroradiology is a field of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases through imaging of the central nervous system. Neuroradiology is responsible for visualizing the brain and spinal cord. Based on images taken with an MRI or CT scan, diseases or abnormalities can be detected. These include, for example:
- Multiple sclerosis
- Fracture of the skull and vertebrae
- Encephalitis and meningitis
- Hernia of the intervertebral disc
In addition, you can control the progression of the disease or the healing process.
Visualization methods and techniques have been developing rapidly in recent years. With the introduction of computerized imaging of sections, such as CT or MRI, X-ray studies in neuroradiology have lost their significance. Meanwhile, high resolution images of the human body can be obtained that are capable of representing very fine tissue structures. This allows for accurate diagnosis and provides the basis for invasive procedures.
Magnetic resonance imaging in modern diagnostics is one of the main high-tech and informative research methods for diseases of the central nervous system. The MRI function is based on the use of a magnetic field and radio waves, which allow you to read the data of the examined organ, and then transfer the image to a computer monitor. So a specialist can visualize damaged areas and brain structures.
The Tel Aviv Medical Clinic uses advanced, powerful tomographs that, with all the safety of the study, produce detailed images, eliminating the possibility of error. The advantages of MRI in high performance and absolute harmlessness even for children in their first years of life. The device examines the tissue and configuration of the brain, blood vessels, possible inflammatory changes and pathologies.
Preparation for the examination
The minimally invasive technique for examining the brain does not require special preparation and has almost no contraindications. But to obtain an accurate image, complete immobility of the patient during the procedure is necessary. Having the skills and knowledge of using unique, rational techniques, clinic specialists achieve positive results in the diagnosis and treatment. Each patient is provided with excellent conditions for a hospital stay, equipped ward, attentive staff care, a full range of medical services. For the examination and treatment of patients with neurological diseases requiring the intervention of neurosurgeons, Tel Aviv Medical Clinic has established affordable rates similar to those in public hospitals.
