I may have Neurological Complications resulting from HIV/AIDS...

Why do I need an MRI? 

If your doctor has recommended a brain MRI to look for neurological complications that may be secondary to HIV, we appreciate how important it is to get an accurate diagnosis. Smart Choice MRI is dedicated to providing you with exceptional service and value at this important time.

Unlike an x-ray, an MRI of the brain clearly demonstrates the soft tissues and structures of the brain, and can be ordered either with our without contrast media. Depending on the severity of symptoms that initiated the scan, contrast enhancement may or may not be ordered by your doctor. There are numerous potential conditions that could be found, most are best diagnosed with contrast media. Blood tests to determine your kidney and liver functions will likely be required prior to your exam.

Our radiologists at the Cleveland Clinic, recently rated one of top hospitals in the country, are committed to providing you and your doctor with the most accurate diagnosis available. In the case of a brain or cervical MRI that means that only a dedicated Neuroradiologist (a radiologist that has undergone specialized training in the field of neurology and has passed a board examination in Neuroradiology) will interpret your exam. Comparison to any prior advanced imaging studies will be required to fully evaluate your condition. Click here to learn more about our radiology team.
