What is MRI Brain Scan?
MRI or magnetic resonance imaging is very important diagnostic study that is increasing used to study the soft tissues and other soft body parts.

MRI Brain is also called MRI Head.
MRI is done with the help of a large machine which looks like a hollow cylinder. The cylindrical machine has a table or a moving bed attached to one side (the open side). The patient is required to lie down on this table and then the table moves inside the machine. The machine generates magnetic field which generates images of the brain. These images are sent to the attached computer and then can be printed out for your doctor to study.
