I've been told I'm having a Brainlab MRI the day before my craniotomy. Just looking for a little more info on how this differs (or whether it does) from a regular MRI? When I google it I come up with a bunch of corporate & doctor-related documents. Does this involve contrast die, or is it just another manufacturer of an MRI?
thanks for any help.
