Answer

MRI

  • Consider MRI of the head to evaluate a patient with a brain abscess. MRI of the head in a patient with left-sided endocarditis may show cerebritis and mycotic aneurysm.

  • A CT scan or MRI of the surrounding tissue of the site of infection may be needed to delineate abscess formation.
