Understanding MRI Pituitary/Sella With Contrast in Pune

What is MRI Pituitary/Sella With Contrast in Pune?

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) Pituitary/Sella With Contrast is an imaging test to create an image of the pituitary gland and the sella depression (which holds the pituitary). The pituitary gland is called the Master’s gland as the hormones produced by it control many different processes in the body. Any abnormality in this gland can affect many other hormones and functions.

This test is prescribed by the doctor to detect empty sella syndrome (ESS), it is a congenital abnormality where the pituitary gland shrinks or becomes flattened with symptoms like headache and visual disturbances. This test is also done to diagnose diabetes insipidus, hypothyroidism, to find out a tumor or abnormal growth in the pituitary gland, and to determine any calcification in the sella region.

The MRI scan is a radiationless, painless, and non-invasive test that creates detailed 3-D images.
