High-resolution MR imaging of the internal auditory canals and petrous temporal bones, as well as MR imaging of the entire brain, with and without intravenous contrast.
General contraindications to MRI include certain metallic implants and stimulator devices (most cardiac pacemakers, cochlear implants, neurostimulators, aneurysm clips, etc.), as well as certain metallic foreign bodies, such as within the orbits. The MRI technologists screen all patients prior to imaging.
MRI intravenous contrast may be contraindicated in some patients, such as in patients with renal failure on dialysis. The technologists will screen for contraindications to MR intravenous contrast as well.
Claustrophobic patients may require an anxiolytic; severely claustrophobic patients may not be able to tolerate the examination.
Thorough evaluation of the brain stem, 7th and 8th cranial nerves, membranous labyrinths, and temporal bones.
