Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

MRI creates images from the resonance created in hydrogen atoms when they are polerized and an electromegntic pulse is used to knock them off axis. This section includes MR analysis software, MRI scanners, gadolinium contrast agents, and related magnetic resonance accessories.

Tourette's, MRI brain scans, children, Washington University of St. Louis School of Medicine

Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have identified areas in the brains of children with Tourette's syndrome that appear markedly different from the same areas in brains of children who don't have the disorder. Above, in a scan of a child with Tourette's, yellow indicates an area with less white matter than in the same brain region in kids who don't have the disorder. The scans also revealed areas in the brains of kids with Tourette's that have more gray matter than in children without the condition. Credit: Washington University School of Medicine
