Advanced Neuro Imaging
Types of Advanced Neuro Imaging
The three most common ways people get a TBI is whiplash, such as in a car accident, a ski/snowboarding accident, and from doing construction. If you have concussion symptoms that aren't going away, get answers with an fMRI.
Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) measures brain activity by detecting changes in blood flow in the brain. This technique relies on the coupled relationship between cerebral blood flow and neuronal activation. When a region of the brain is in use, blood flow to that area increases. FMRI has begun to dominate brain mapping research in recent years as it does not require patients to undergo injections, surgery, to ingest substances, or to be exposed to ionizing radiation.
Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI): Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) is an MRI technique that reduces image noise without removing significant parts of the image content to estimate the nerve fiber organization of the brain.

Susceptibility Weighted Imaging (SWI) is an extremely sensitive MRI sequence that views veins and tissue with varying magnetic susceptibility to generate a unique contrast in venous blood, hemorrhages and iron storage. SWI acquires images using an echo pulse sequence.
SWI allow us to view Post Traumatic Injuries, Traumatic Brain Injuries, Concussion damage, and other brain damage. We accept liens on SWI procedures.
