MRI strike protocol and perfusion imaging is a diagnostic modality in which MRI can detect brain tissue damage by an ischemic stroke and brain hemorrhage.

MRI Stroke protocol +Perfusion Imaging (With contrast) - a technique helps to show the cellular structure of the brain. Another technique called "perfusion imaging" shows how much blood is reaching the tumor. These methods may help doctors predict how well treatment will work and as a confirmatory diagnosis. Also, assess the metastasis to other organs. 

Why Do You Need MRI Stroke Protocol + Pefusion Imaging ?

  • Transient ischemic attack
  • Cerebrovuscular attack
  • Inflammation, swelling or infection in  brain
  • Encephalititis
  • Dementia
  • Brain tumor
  • Brain abscess
  •  Cancer metastatic from other organs
  • Cerebral lesion 
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Congenital abnormalities
  • Vascular pathologies
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Haemorrhage 
  • Identify the tissue that may be target for thrombolytic therapy
  • Post operative follow up 

What Is the Procedure of MRI Stroke Protocol and Perfusion Imaging Test?

Before the Procedure-

  • Instructions of eating and drinking before the MRI Scan may vary depend on your condition.
  • Tell your health provider about your medical history, pregnancy, claustrophobia they will guide you about your medication intake.
  • Remove your jewellery, hairpin and any metallic objects before the Scan
  • It’s important to tell your doctor and MRI technologist if you have any of the following-

Cardiac pacemaker

Dental implants

Cochlear implant

  • You will be asked to wear comfortable clothes.
  • In case of MRI of brain with contrast media, contrast media is injected via IV.

During the procedure

Patient will be positioned in a moving table. Technologist may place a device over your head that contain magnetic coil which is capable of sending and receiving radiowaves. After that you will be placed in MRI machine and scanning is done.

Radiologist evaluates the obtained images and makes a report.

The complete procedure is usually completed within 45 minutes

After the procedure

You can back to your normal routine unless contrast media is injected. In case of MRI with contrast media you may be monitored for a short period of time.

MRI scan will be analyzed by radiologist and result will be shared with your doctor.

When Will You Get Your Result?

MRI images will be accessed by the radiologist trained to interpret and write a report on them. Usually reporting will take 1-2 days; however, if the MRI was don emergency basis, the results could be provided quickly.

Frequently Asked Questions

An MRI scan stroke protocol with perfusion imaging is a combined sequence of MRI scans that is collaborated with the perfusion imaging. The scan is used to evaluate the damages that are caused by a potential stroke event or brain hemorrhage.

The MRI stroke protocol includes MRI brain, MRI Brain Angiography, DWI, MRI venography, and Perfusion imaging.

The MRI stroke protocol with perfusion imaging gives information about certain conditions- 

  • Transient ischemic attack
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Cerebrovascular attack
  • Infection in the brain 
  • Vascular pathologies
  • Swelling or inflammation of the brain 
  • Dementia
  • Encephalitis
  • Brain abscess
  • Brain cancer - benign and metastatic
  • Congenital abnormalities
  • Brain Haemorrhage

A stroke is also known as a brain attack. A stroke can be caused due to a decreased or blocked blood supply to the brain, rupturing of a blood vessel can also lead to signs and symptoms of a brain stroke. This leads to damage to the brain tissues that can be permanent, long-term which might also prove to be fatal in certain cases. 

A blockage in the artery carrying oxygenated blood to the brain can lead to ischemic brain stroke. A hemorrhagic stroke can be caused due to leaking or bursting of a blood vessel carrying blood to the brain. Sometimes stroke can be caused due to a brief disruption of blood flow going to the brain that stops the oxygen to the brain for some time, this transient condition is known as a transient ischemic attack (TIA).

MRI perfusion is a special type of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique that is used as a diagnostic modality in detecting issues related to the blood flow, the technique uses an injected dye that helps in the visualization of the blood flow.

No, the MRI protocol is conducted in a painless, non-invasive and safe manner. It doesn't cause any pain but a slight discomfort can be felt while lying on a scan table for a long period. 

You should avoid taking magnetic resonance imaging scans in case you have any metallic device implanted in your body. The working principle of the MRI scanner is based on magnetic fields, these magnetic fields can get interfered with by the metallic devices, thereby affecting the diagnosis and treatment. Metallic devices can be cardiac pacemakers, stents, prosthetic legs, coils, neurostimulators, defibrillators, etc.

The MRI stroke protocol is a highly accurate diagnostic test that uses diffusion-weighted images having an 88%-100% sensitivity and a specificity of 95%-100%.

A CT head scan is usually opted for as an emergency or the first-line diagnostic test for a brain stroke. A CT scan is capable of showing bleeding occurring through the vessels carrying blood to the brain or showing any damage or injury to the brain cells. 

An MRI sequence is also almost as sensitive as a CT scan which is the standard first-line test used for stroke cases.
