An MRI scan uses a magnetic field and radio waves to produce detailed images of the brain and blood vessels. MRI scans help us diagnose tumors, strokes, bleeding in the brain, infections, and other neurological conditions.
A CT scan uses a series of X-rays to create cross-sectional images of the brain. This helps us diagnose tumors, infections, brain damage, bleeding in the brain and other possible medical problems that may be causing major and/or consistent headaches.
While the most common treatments for MS include corticosteroids and plasma exchange, both treatments can be expensive or only offer short-term support. Infusion therapy can help treat and reduce relapse rates — increasing your remission time between flareups. Plus, receiving treatments from a specialized facility — like Northeast Neurology — is cheaper than visiting a hospital.
How the Treatment Works
Infusion therapy relieves symptoms for longer periods of time than corticosteroids and plasma exchange by distributing medicine directly into your bloodstream. The amount of time a treatment takes varies, but most patients feel relief before they leave their appointment.
