Patients at Miami Neuroscience Institute have access to a full range of diagnostic tests, including some of the most advanced imaging technology available today. Combined with our decades of neuroradiology expertise, our team can quickly provide accurate diagnoses of brain, spinal cord and central nervous system diseases and conditions.

At Miami Neuroscience Institute, we have been at the forefront of neuroscience imaging and testing for more than 20 years, and we are a national leader in advancing stroke care through the use of CT angiography and CT perfusion imaging.

Our diagnostic testing is led by a team of Board-certified neuroradiologists who specialize in reading studies of neurologic conditions. We provide imaging studies, such as MRIs and CT scans of the brain, as well as more complex MRI perfusion and spectroscopy tests.

Whether you are visiting us for a chronic condition or recovering from a stroke, our team can find the right test to help guide an effective treatment plan.

Why do I need diagnostic testing and imaging at Miami Neuroscience Institute?

You may need diagnostic testing at Miami Neuroscience Institute if you have experienced a stroke or other serious neurological event, such as a traumatic brain injury.

We may also use tests to diagnose or check progress of:

  • Brain tumors
  • Inflammatory or infectious lesions on the brain or spine
  • Aneurysms
  • Central nervous system conditions, such as multiple sclerosis

In some cases, your doctor may recommend diagnostic testing and imaging if you are experiencing neurological symptoms, such as chronic headaches.

If you are undergoing surgery for a brain tumor, our team may also use intraoperative MRIs (iMRI) or intraoperative CT scans (iCT). These tests allow our experts to scan the brain during surgery to determine whether the entire tumor has been removed or if additional surgery is needed.

What kind of diagnostic tests are offered at Miami Neuroscience Institute?

Frequently Asked Questions

  • When you come to Miami Neuroscience Institute for diagnostic testing and imaging, you will be met by a patient navigator. The navigator will help guide you through the process of registering and getting you to your exam. Once you are ready for the exam, a technologist will be by your side throughout the procedure to answer questions and make sure you are comfortable.

  • Neurologists, neurosurgeons and neuroradiologists from Miami Neuroscience Institute work hand-in-hand with oncologists at Miami Cancer Institute. Many of our team members spend time at both institutes collaborating on patient cases and determining the best treatment approaches.

  • CT perfusion or MR perfusion scans can highlight areas of blood flow in the brain or blood flow to a tumor. These tests may help your doctor to diagnose a neurological condition.  These tests may also be used to help neurosurgeons plan the surgery to treat a neurological condition.
