Enhanced Multi-parametric Traumatic Brain Injury MRI

Elite MRI

Improving Images, Improving Lives

There are patients that have sustained a brain injury, with normal brain scans – yet are symptomatic. Our Elite MRI has the ability to provide objective evidence not available on a routine MRI.

We can see what others cannot see
Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI)
Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI)

Measures structural integrity of nerve tracts, which can often be damaged during a brain injury.



Neuroquant
Neuroquant

Provides measurements for 47 brain structures.



Arterial Spin Labeling (ASL)
Arterial Spin Labeling (ASL)

Provides measurements of brain tissue (grey matter) blood flow.



MRI Spectroscopy
MRI Spectroscopy

Virtual biopsy of a tiny piece of brain tissue.



Susceptibility Weighted Imaging (SWI)
Susceptibility Weighted Imaging (SWI)

Detects microbleeds within the brain.



3D Flair / 3D Flair with Gad
