Brain Scan

A brain scan or neuroimaging is a technique used by neurologists to record the structure and functioning of the brain. The test is usually used by neurologists to determine if the patient has any neurological disorders. The test can also give indications of a possible neurological disorder in the future.

A brain scan is classified into two major categories viz. functional imaging and structural imaging. The functional imaging is used to determine any metabolic problems. It cal also be used to determine an onset of Alzheimer’s and also help in identifying the different stages of Alzheimer’s disease. Structural imaging on the other hand is used to study the structure of the brain and identify the causes for any intracranial disorders such as tumors.
