An MRI machine will scan and produce 3-D images of your carotid arteries, brain arteries, or both. Then, during a private consultation, a physician will highlight any signs of carotid artery plaque or a potential brain aneurysm and work with you to develop a proactive plan to decrease stroke risk. You will also receive a follow-up report summarizing the details of your consultation. Appointments typically last around 45 minutes.
MRI Pathways helps patients prevent chronic medical conditions such as stroke, back pain, and arthritis through a combination of advanced screening technology and lifestyle changes. Using MRI technology, the facility screens for carotid-artery narrowing, potentially malignant growths, and even brain aneurysms.
