Magnetic resonance imaging allows to investigate morphological and functional aspects of the brain, something extremely useful to diagnose neurological diseases, including the cerebrovascular diseases and, of course, the cerebral ischemia in the first hours of its ocurrence, so it facilitates to follow the clinical course of ictus, to reduce the necrosis area and to guarantee a better life quality of patients. Contrary to tomography and angiography it doesn't use ionizing radiations. In this article it is concluded, among other things, that its high sensibility overcomes the number of confirmations obtained through computarized axial tomography.
