Why an MRI scan of the head and brain?

Regular recurrent headache (cluster headache, migraine, tension headache) is one of the most common complaints. The cause may have something to do with stress or psychological pressure. But it is also possible that there is something exerting pressure on certain areas of the brain. An MRI scan of the head and of the brain can provide you with more clarity on the cause of the complaints, because an examination with MRI images provides more information than, for example, an X-ray. On the scan images, we look at the skull. the brain, narrowing/dilation of the blood vessels, brain damage and brain tumours.

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is a technique for examining in detail the most vital organs and blood vessels. During the examination, the MRI scanner creates a large number of images of your head and brain by using a large magnetic field. Cross-sections can be created in this way. The computer presents the images as slices to facilitate subsequent assessment of the results. Our specialist can view the images at any random angle, allowing them to observe details from 5 mm.

During scanning, you lie on a comfortable couch, which is pushed into a kind of tunnel. The tunnel is open at both the front and back. If you find lying in the tunnel claustrophobic, you may have someone with you in the MRI room. A nurse will be on stand-by to provide information and, if necessary, to put you at ease. In addition, during the MRI scan, you have a bell that you can use to interrupt the scan in emergencies.
