The secret way on how neurologist identify brain aneurysm

 

Aneurysm is a ballooning at a weak spot in an artery wall. It may leak or rupture, causing bleeding into the brain (hemorrhagic stroke). Most often a ruptured brain aneurysm occurs in the space between the brain and the thin tissues covering the brain. Neurologist use multiple tests to confirm a brain aneurysm diagnosis:

  • MRA: A magnetic resonance angiogram (MRA) scan is a type of MRI scan that’s specifically for blood vessels.

  • CTA: This is a special type of CT scan that focuses on the blood vessels.

  • Angiogram: For a traditional angiogram, doctors insert a catheter (a thin tube) into your body to see your blood vessels more clearly. It’s the gold standard for diagnosing brain aneurysms because it gives a 3-D view of an aneurysm, offering precise details that help determine the best treatment for you.

If you’re with someone who complains of a sudden, severe headache or who loses consciousness or has a seizure; Immediate seek medical advise or bring patient to the nearest emergency medical institution. #aneurysm #stroke #bleeding #seizure #brainspecialist #brain #specialist #winnielimkhoo #neurologist #manila #philippines #health #tips #advise
