In brief: CT OR MRI

A ct scan of the head or an MRI of the brain can pick up brain tumors.
An MRI is a more sensitive test but takes longer to do.

In brief: Exam and scan

The first step to be evaluated for a brain tumor is to have a physician do a full neurological examination.
Depending on the results of this (and your symptoms), a brain scan such as a ct or MRI may be the next step.
