Screening

The Brain Aneurysm Foundation says doctors can painlessly screen for brain aneurysms with digital imaging software.  An MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) that uses computer-generated radio waves and a powerful magnetic field to produce detailed images of the brain CT (Computed Tomography) that reveals the presence of an aneurysm and whether it has burst are common options.
