The role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in neurology
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an imaging modality that gives three dimensional images, with excellent resolution of soft tissue. It is particularly useful for neurological cases, due to its ability to “see through” bone. MRI uses magnetic fields to produce images, rather than ionising radiation. Different sequences emphasise different tissue characteristics, such as the presence of water, fat and cerebrospinal fluid. The approach to the neurological case and the role of MRI within this is discussed.
