  • Stroke

    Specifically, this exploratory study investigates changes in gait pattern among stroke patients with hemiparesis or hemiplegia during gait recovery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] to identify abnormalities in the brain arteries (such as aneurysms) or other sources of bleeding, and structural MRI if this shows no cause.[en.wikipedia.org] This case report presents the clinical record of a 37-year-old man who presented with a dense right hemiplegia, found to be caused by a left medial medullary stroke.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Brain Abscess

    The postoperative course was uneventful, but a slight left hemiplegia remained at discharge.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] MRI has higher resolution and can show early abnormalities better than CT.[merckmanuals.com] The common clinical presentations included headache (61.7%), fever (50.6%), and hemiplegia (34.6%). Eleven patients (13.6%) were dead at hospital discharge.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    Extracranial metastasis, mainly a feature of World Health Organization (WHO) grade III meningiomas, is only rarely reported in grade II meningiomas. We report a case of a 48-year-old man who was initially diagnosed in 2010 with an occipital convexity meningioma based on computed tomography scan/magnetic resonance[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    In this case, we present a patient who presented to the pediatric emergency department with new-onset seizure and hemiplegia 2 days after a roller-coaster ride.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients whose CT scans reveal no abnormalities but who have clinical abnormalities on examination or significant symptomatic complaints may have abnormalities on brain MRI[dx.doi.org] Historical note and terminology In 1657 Wepfer described the presence of a "bloody cyst" in the subdural space of an elderly man postmortem who had developed an aphasia and hemiplegia[medlink.com]

The relationship of MRI abnormalities with various parameters was analysed.[lupus.bmj.com]

  • Brain Laceration

    In select patients, physicians use MRI of the brain, including special MR scanning techniques called diffusion-weighted imaging, diffusion tensor imaging and MR spectroscopy[radiologyinfo.org] , to help diagnose brain injuries that not have readily apparent abnormalities on a more routine MR scan.[radiologyinfo.org]
