MRI Brain With 3D Ciss Space
What is MRI Brain With 3D Ciss Space?
An MRI of the brain is a safe and painless imaging test to create detailed pictures of the brain and surrounding tissues. A Brain MRI with 3D CISS space is advised when a routine MRI does not provide the desired information. CISS (constructive interference in steady-state) images yield the best detail available.
This test is suggested in case of symptoms like vision problems, seizures, chronic headaches, speech difficulties, etc. The test helps diagnose inflammation or blockage in the brain's cranial nerves and to identify the presence of any lesion or cyst. It also detects damage caused to the brain by an injury or a stroke. The entire procedure takes close to about 40-60 minutes.
Why is MRI Brain With 3D Ciss Space done?
- To diagnose inflammation or blockage in the cranial nerves of the brain
- To find out the presence of any CSF lesion (arachinoid cyst found within the subarachnoid space) or intracranial cyst
- To detect infections like CSF rhinorrhea (leakage of CSF via nose), stenosis (narrowing of the spinal cord), sinusitis.
