470162 tn?1285755313 Most places are trying to go to CD so if yours is on film you won't be able to do this. Typically <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> machines are 1.5T STRENGTH. Open <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> range from 0.5T to 0.7T STRENGTH. I'm not sure if it would be on your films or not. I would asked next time or I went to a website that told what strength it was. The problem is that the better machines (the 3T) are few and far between. Most hospitals do not have them. I will be soon going to a university hospital that advertises having a 3T, 7T, & 8T.
1036535 tn?1278506199 I was in Emergency and had an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> and CT sc<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> that day. Recently I had an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> ordered from an internists office and he wrote on the request that it was not urgent. I ended up paying an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> it privately, because the wait was going to be months. When I did go privately, however, it was only $800 My fatherinlaw just spent a month in hospital, a lot of it in intensive care. He had wonderful care at no an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>costan> to him at all. Our system is far from perfect, but it's there an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> everyone. I feel blessed .
Avatar m tn Hi again I would like to add that yes we have all see the posts about side effects that some people have experienced. Most if not all are related to treatment with interferon and while the problems those people have experienced are not good they are experienced by a minority of patients. Also I believe at least some of them had other medical conditions which most likely complicated their treatment or their livers were already in bad shape to begin with.
Avatar f tn Just to clear confusion from last comment, the sc<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> 8 years ago didn't mention the cyst. But the one just over 4 months ago did.

561470 tn?1253171713 I recently had a CT brain sc<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> which showed a very bright white matter 12mm in size and have been recommended to see an MS specialist and another mri with contrast. They did not use contrast with any of my previous contrast. Why does contrasting make a difference? I haven't as yet manage to find an answer to that one yet. My appointment with the MS specialist is on the 4th December, he is supposed to be the best in Australia. So fingers crossed, I may this time get a correct diagnosis.
Avatar f tn It was only at the beginning of this year that I decided to see my GP about it, it was very emotional an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> me to discuss but she advised me to have some blood tests and a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> sc<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>, which I did. I initially thought these could be absence seizures but they were ruled out when the mri scan came back normal and the blood tests were fine, revealing only that I had a thyroid issue. The GP has recommended I see a Neurologist but am afraid of what it could be. I just want to stop zoning out.

1399496 tn?1282494734 Hi sorry to hear ur gp is so stingy not to give u a sc<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>! I am in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Australia</span> and we seem to have no prob getting scans so not sure if ur under different rules or just a stingy Doc? I take Naproxen 1000mg daily so I know about that med, its an anti inflammatory med and can sometimes give u some stomach issues in long term eg ulcers etc. It's always good to check your meds and also check combining meds. You can find online sites that you can check eg medscape etc.
Avatar m tn I agree with John, shoot an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> of the brain, even if the doctor tries to foist a CT sc<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> on you.

It sounds like from your valve description that he got an echocardiogram in the past, but they will probably want to run another with a complete cardiovascular work-up, given his symptoms.
Avatar f tn who say it could be lyme, and I'm going to see this Dr this weekend. Lyme is not recognised here in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Australia</span>, but reports are that some have been tested an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> it, and have gotten positive results an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> it, and I do believe that it is here in Australia, and at this stage will get tested an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> anything. What are the chances of a child suffering with ON at age 7??????????? and having ms at such an early age, and I do know it can happen. any advice will be much appreciated.
Avatar m tn My GP was unhappy about this and said I should make a complaint so I did To cut along story short I was diagnosed in London with POTS and hypermobility syndrome (2012) but because I had ataxia they sent me fro <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> .My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> showed a couple of lesions in the frontal lobes.
Avatar f tn Hi Melissa, I agree with Supermum, I have private health insurance and I used to see a private neuro, one in private practice and as you prob remember I live in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Australia</span> too, my private neuro sent me to both public hospital and private hospital an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span>.

Avatar f tn normal, barium swallow: normal, ct sc<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>: normal. I feel so bad an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> her because Doc. can't figure it and wanted to put her on antidepressants, I said no way of course. But reading symptons from the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>um and researching sphicter of oddi dysfunction, sounds like what she may have. The only symptoms that do not seem to match is the weightloss and stomach popping. Are these also possible symptons of sphincter of oddi dysfunction. any help would be great, I am desperate to help her.
8411000 tn?1464560311 Back in 2000 I started experiencing dizzy spells, head heaviness, trouble finding words, and fatigue. I had seen a few doctors without finding anything wrong. Two years ago I experienced my first vertigo attack. Since then the attacks have become more frequent and more severe. The last six months I have been experiencing vertigo, dizzy spells, ear fullness, hearing loss in one ear with more tinnitus, memory problems, headaches, fatigue, balance issues, and trouble finding words.

428185 tn?1203745389 Just diagnosed Feb. 15; Gleason 8, PSA 8.8, stage T1c, clean bone sc<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> indicates contained in prostate, no seminal vesicle/lymph node involvement. I'm 61, ridiculously healthy and athletic, sexually active w/ my wife and want to stay that way. My problem: every treatment program has the same goal: kill the cancer by killing the prostate. Even proton beam with so much talk about targeting only the tumors and sparing healthy tissue - they don't mean healthy prostate tissue.
Avatar m tn previous to living in korea I lived in the UK, Thailand an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> 2 years, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Australia</span> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> one year and I have only visited the USA once, almost 20 years ago. My symptoms really started about 5 months ago. It started with dizziness that alternated between a light headed feeling (similar to being mildly drunk) and a foggy feeling - like im hung over - i had this feeling pretty much constantly an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> 6 weeks. I also had occasional tingling in the face, on both sides.
Avatar n tn I have severe anxiety, which can frequently generate all kinds of symptoms. I had an Ultrasound and a CT sc<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> both showed nothing (except Fatty liver). All my blood work comes up clean. I have no idea what to do at this point. I cannot afan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>d to keep shelling out 200-1000$ per test and keep coming up with nothing the test the doctor has set up an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> me now is a gallbladder function scan. I would have thought that the CT would have been able to see this if it was an issue.
Avatar m tn My neurosurgeon also told me that my right hand may suffer permanent nerve damage if I do not go ahead with the ACDF surgery (judging from my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> sc<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> and symptoms during the consultation). But I am still a bit reluctant to give in to surgery too early. I am concern about the post-surgery side effect which would accelerate adjacent discs degeneration. I am scare to think about down the track there will be more ACDF to be done on the adjacent discs.
Avatar n tn I saw a neurologist a few weeks ago and he has said compression of the spinal cord in the neck area. I am waiting to go an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> sc<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> asap. I also have floaters in both eyes, vibrating L shoulder and R foot and sciatica down the backs of my legs. I wake up some mornings and feel like I have a hangover.
306827 tn?1279032340 I know they are expensive - but I am told cervical is one of the most complex areas to sc<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> - CT or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span>. So why not thoracic? Mad. I do count myself as very lucky that my neurologist just said - we need to do the whole spine. and although I do not like what we found, yes I am glad we found the cause. I am interested in Copaxone. I believe though that depression is also an issue with Betaseron, but that is anecdotal only.
Avatar m tn He stated that he was about 95% sure that it was just irregular hard palate bone shaping (possibly torus) and said if i would like the extra couple of percent to take it to 98-99 then to take an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> sc<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>. I am going an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> this today, and we will discuss the results on monday which is 6 days from now. I will be quite worried up until that point. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> me though, it doesnt feel like bone necessarily.

Avatar n tn I remember reading about a woman in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Australia</span> (I think) whose radiation treatments would <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cost</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> her $4000.00 and she couldn't afan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>d it - I figure my chemo alone adds up to almost $20000.00 - that doesn't include my CT scans, Dr's visits, prescriptions etc. As hard as it is, I try now not to complain too much about my taxes - I do wonder why, though, they keep going up, up, up and we seem to get nothing back in return.
Avatar f tn The neurologist I'm questioning is the Neurologist who specifically said to me following this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span>, you have a few extra spots since your last <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span>, I want to do lumbar puncture to rule in or out MS. Now the mri he compared it to is my 2012 mri. 5/6 high signal foci were noted on that report as too was my 2010 mri. How do i know if an increase of 13 is not causing my symptoms? How do i know if the largest one isn't causing my symptoms?
572651 tn?1333939396 My diagnosis was fairly easy because I have a classic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> with lesions/enhancing lesions in all the right places and a neurologist who doesn't believe in delaying treatment. Also, I am one of several co-community leaders here on the MS community and am passionate about advocating an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> all of us. Who's next?
