The images captured during the MRI scan can be stored on an electronic device which is further printed on a film. The MRI scan is radiationless test which uses strong magnetic and radio waves to create detailed and clear 3D multiple images. The whole MRI scan procedure takes about 40-60 minutes.

- To diagnose brain tumors like accumulation of excessive cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) within the brain cavities.
- To locate the presence of tumors like arachnoid cysts, chordoma in the brain.
- To detect increased or decreased CSF (brain fluid) flow and its ventriculperitoneal pressure on the brain parts.
- To determine ischemia or stoke condition in which clot forms in the brain.
