New Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Software to Improve Diagnosis of People with Neurovascular Diseases.

(IRB#: IRB_00162281)

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a way to form pictures inside of a persons body. A new MRI software has been designed to improve the quality and diagnosis of neurovascular diseases in the brain and surrounding areas. These diseases can cause problems in the muscles and nerves of a persons body. We want to learn if new MRI software creates better pictures to help people with neurovascular diseases. The information we gain may aid future patients.
