Imaging Studies in Treating Chronic Brain Disorders

At NeuroMed, we believe in leveraging modern technology to provide the best possible care for our patients. One such technology is Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), an invaluable tool in diagnosing certain manifestations of tinnitus.

The MRI is one of the primary imaging tools that we use to help us fully understand the health of the hearing nerve. 

The Role of MRI in Tinnitus Disorders

MRIs create detailed images of the brain without using ionizing radiation. This non-invasive technique plays a pivotal role in diagnosing and treating a range of chronic neurological disorders.

It provides in-depth information about the brain's structure and the hearing nerve. This aids in identifying anomalies that may cause neurological symptoms.

MRI in Treating Specific Conditions

At NeuroMed, we use MRIs to manage several specific brain sensitivity and neurological disorders.


Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, can be a debilitating condition. While it is often linked to hearing loss, it can also be associated with brain disorders. An MRI scan can provide a detailed exploration of your brain and hearing nerve, identifying any anomalies that could contribute to your tinnitus or broader neurological issues. Common situations for an MRI would be situations where there is unilateral hearing loss or unilateral tinnitus. 

Vertigo and Dizziness

Vertigo and dizziness can be symptoms of various conditions, including Meniere's disease, vestibular neuritis, and some types of migraines.

An MRI can help identify the specific cause of your vertigo and dizziness, such as lesions in the brainstem or cerebellum, allowing us to develop a more targeted treatment approach.


In most cases, headaches may not be a symptom of a serious condition; for some rare cases, they can be a sign of a brain tumor, aneurysm, or other serious disorders.

An MRI scan can help detect any underlying cause of your headaches, allowing for early intervention and appropriate treatment.

How We Use Imaging Studies

At NeuroMed, MRIs are often part of our comprehensive approach, including clinical evaluation, patient history, and other diagnostic tools. It is one part of our integrated approach to treating brain sensitivity disorders.

Nonetheless, its role in managing tinnitus and related disorders is indispensable and continues to evolve as we learn more about the brain's intricacies.

Through our dedication to advanced technology and personalized care, we are helping our patients navigate their health journeys and improve their quality of life.
