Technologies in healthcare allow us to explore what previously seemed impossible.
What is the purpose of performing an MRI of the brain?
MRI of the brain (magnetic resonance imaging of the head) is recommended in the following cases:
- diagnostics of stroke;
- neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer's disease, dementia, etc.);
- brain neoplasms;
- neurological disorders of the brain;
- headache with an unclear origin;
- diagnostics of brain vessels.

Safety of the procedure
It is a safe procedure for children and adults, it is painless and extremely informative in the examination.
In what cases is a “counter-agent” used?
To detect perfusion of the brain, MRI with angiography is performed with the help of a contrast agent, which is injected intravenously. This examination shows whether there have been changes in the vessels of the head. In some cases, the use of contrasts is not necessary and this point can only be determined by a doctor.
When it is impossible to perform MRI of the head?
If the patient has a pacemaker or metal elements in the body, this type of diagnosis is not performed.
Examination of the brain does not require additional preparation of the patient, but the patient should remember that before undergoing such an examination it is not recommended to consume alcohol, psychotropic substances etc.
At the St. Paraskeva Medical Center in Magnetic resonance diagnostics department has been operating in St. Paraskeva Medical Center in Lviv for 10 years and our experience shows that this is the most accurate type of examination to date, which contributes to the accurate diagnosis.
