Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) for Headache

As part of the process of diagnosing the cause of your headaches, your doctor may recommend a scan using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This scanning device uses a magnetic field and radio waves to produce images and detect diseased tissue noninvasively.

To provide the best possible treatment for your headaches, you may require a number of tests, such as MRI. Once the cause of your headaches has been diagnosed, your doctor can work with you on creating a headache treatment plan that may include medical treatment or pain management.
