Summary

Fast brain MRI scans can often replace the need for a CT scan for evaluation of ventriculoperitoneal shunts, and evaluation of brain fluid spaces. The use of fbMRI scans for other types of neurologic disorders has not well studied. We aim to study the use of fbMRI for diagnosis of a vast array of neurologic disorders by comparing them with a routine brain MRI in children. We hypothesize that a well-designed fbMRI scan will be able to diagnose many more neurologic diseases than we currently think, decreasing the need for sedation and anesthesia in the pediatric patient population.
