In brief: No

No, but it would exclude many more serious diagnosis.

In brief: Not directly usefull

An MRI might be done during the work up of a person suffering from vertigo.
However, it would not be useful in establishing a diagnosis of benign positional vertigo. This diagnosis depends on findings on physical exam and a lack of test results that support other causes.
