Alpers' Disease

My Doctor thinks I may have Alpers' Disease...

Why do I need a Brain MRI?

If your doctor recommended a brain MRI to rule out or track the progression of Alpers’ Disease in your loved one, you will likely want a definitive and timely diagnosis. Smart Choice MRI is dedicated to providing you with exceptional service and value at this important time.

Unlike an x-ray, a brain MRI clearly demonstrates the soft tissues and structures of the brain. For individuals who may have Alpers’ Disease, a brain MRI will provide detailed images of the cerebrum. This will allow your physician to evaluate the health and volume of the grey matter in the affected areas, resulting in a more effective treatment plan.

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 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.

Why Choose Smart Choice?

Smart Choice MRI opened its doors five years ago to provide patients in Southeastern Wisconsin with transparent and affordable imaging services. Many of us have seen our deductibles go up or have transitioned to high-deductible insurance plans. That’s why Smart Choice MRI charges just $600 for every MRI, including contrast exams.
