Routine brain magnetic resonance imaging is not necessary for those with migraine who have normal neurologic function unless there is a clear clinical indication that there are underlying structural abnormalities.
Advancements in research have led to the identification of a growing number of genetic and neuroimaging markers of migraine.
Pain experienced by patients during episodic migraine is associated with the occurrence of white matter hyperintensities in the cerebral hemisphere ipsilateral to the pain side.
Patients who experience migraines may have higher cerebral sodium concentrations than nonmigraineurs.
Although a range of incidental findings may be observed on MRI obtained in pediatric headache, they are rarely indicative of a serious underlying condition.
A sizeable percentage of patients with rheumatoid arthritis who are in clinical remission have evidence of disease activity on magnetic resonance imaging of the foot that is mostly affected.
MRI may assist in identifying patients with unclassified arthritis who will develop rheumatoid arthritis (RA) — primarily in patients with UA presenting with oligoarthritis.
Repeated magnetic resonance imaging for chronic spine pain does not impact occurrence of surgical treatment or interval changes.
Head Computed Tomography Safe in Pregnant Women Presenting With Headache in the Emergency DepartmentMay 10, 2017
MRI is ordered more often than CT for pregnant patients with headache, despite no significant difference in radiation risk.
For every 5 patients with RAs displaying improved disease activity scores or remission by clinical criteria, 2 will exhibit disease progression on MRI.
Acute migraine attacks are associated with a reduction in dopamine release.
The opportunity exists to radically change the way medicine approaches TBI.
