Ct angiogram of legs

Common Questions and Answers about Ct angiogram of legs


Avatar m tn Life is full of risk. However, the risk for Angiogram is tiny. Let's say you go for the CT-64 slice, which my Cardiologists have all hated, and they find that there is a blockage which warrants further investigation, you will still need an angiogram after. If anything is found, all paths will send you back to the angiogram. Even if nothing is found during the angiogram, you will know with absolute certainty that there is nothing wrong.
Avatar f tn On the shins of my legs i have these hot patches, almost as if only a specific part is heated up
Avatar m tn So what are the chances of a false-negative with the CT Angiogram? Could I have increased the chances of a false-negative by not properly holding my breath after the contrast injection?
Avatar n tn 02 and also place a greenfield filter in the main artery coming out of my legs to prevent any future blood clots from my legs going to my heart and possibly cause more damage to my heart. I am not scared because I figure if it's my time to die no one can change it anyway.
Avatar f tn thanks a ton for this reply, ur suggestions r of great help, i checked the angiogram report done 9 yrs ago.
Avatar m tn Unruptured cerebral aneurysm can be investigated with cerebral arteriogram or angiogram. A doctor inserts a long thin tube into an artery in your legs and guides it through your blood vessels to the arteries in your neck that lead to your brain. A specialist injects dye into the arteries, which creates a map of your arteries and the aneurysm on xrays. CT can reveal blood flow in your brain and show aneurysm location.
Avatar n tn (Slight degeneration of lower lumbar discs but nothing to cause my symptoms.) He also requested another CT angiogram which was also clear. Went to a vascular surgeon and apart from slight varacose veins everything normal. Went to a rheumatologist and all normal there also. GP has check all bloods and all ok. My father is pernicious anemic so I do take b12 supplements from time to time. Lastly was referred to a Dermatologist who suspects Erythromelalgia.
Avatar n tn HI, I'm a 40 yr old woman who has been plagued by extreme pain that has grown worse over the past 9 or 10 years. It all started when I was about 29, my right lower leg would go numb when I walked. I also would get horrible cramps in my calf. I could stick a pin in my calf and top of my leg and foot and not feel it. It has progressed now to the point where all my muscles and joints are affected.

Avatar n tn I had a CT angiogram and ultrasound of my legs that showed no blockages; however, the chemical nuclear stress test came back positive for something. What does that mean?
Avatar f tn I used to be so sharp, and now I find myself forgetting what I was doing in the middle of things. My neurologist didn't detect any tumors or lesions on my CT scan, so he's basically concluded that I'm just making it all up because he thinks I'm too young (23) to have as many issues as I claim. He did say that he saw volume shrinkage on my scan and asked if I have a history of heavy drug or alcohol use.

Avatar f tn This condition has less probability of a heart attack from soft plaque but can cause heart failure. Strong legs require less blood/oxygen per MET (measurement of oxygen required for a unit of energy) and that may explain no symptoms for the routine activity and symptoms for another less experienced activity.
Avatar n tn I am in a good bit of discomfort because both of my legs (from the knees down) are tight and feel like they are half-way into a Charlie-horse type of muscle cramp consantly for the last two days now. I have a B-12 deficiency and Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (hypothyroid) and am currently taking Celebrex for heel spurs in my feet. I am only 27 and am currently thinking it is a vitamin deficiency as well. My advice would be to take a multi-vitamin, eat a banana and see what happens.

678297 tn?1226550062 Hello everybody. I came back here to this website needing some help of Shortness of Breath. It has been about 2 wks since my symptoms started. It started out just like fatigue when I talked for a long time in conversation during my teachings but then its gotten worse. When I walk or talk a lot I feel like I am carrying cobblestones in my chest and its heavy and hard to breath. When I sit down or lye in a certain position i'm ok and no shortness of breath.
Avatar n tn My resting heart rate is about 85. I get completely out of breath with just an easy jog up three flights of stairs and my heart is pounding through my chest and my legs feel like I was carrying another person on my back. I take no meds and have one cup of coffee in the morning. No other caffeine in my diet. I’ve had an echo cardiograph, EKG and stress tests, which have shown some PVCs, which they said was normal for me, other than that the doctors have seemed puzzled on a cause or a solution.
Avatar m tn I wore an event monitor for 3 weeks as well which found that I was having bouts of sinus tachycardia accompanied by PACs. Just a few days ago I underwent a CT angiogram to check for any signs of heart disease and my arteries are clean as a whistle (HUGE relief).
Avatar n tn 47 %107 Clinical interpretation, spirometry/Flow Volume -normal Lung volume/Normal Histamine/Negative Gas diffusion/ Moderate Reduction Conclusion Isolated Moderate Reduction in Diffusion Normal lung CT, Normal lung x-ray, Cardiac/Pulmanary angiogram and doppler of legs showed no blood clots.Heart also appears normal. Physical exam normal. Normal echo. I have mild/moderate hypertension controlled with beta blockers & atacnd.
Avatar n tn An EKG Nasty Ultra sound procedure where I had an esophagial(SP, again forgive me) tube inserted for purposes of Confirming the PFO which was suspected on the regular EKG. Then I had MRI of the head and neck as well as Ultra-sound of the legs to rule out DVT or other clot formation in my lower extremites. A note on PFO's as it appears research I have read also shows a relation to Migraines. I had this prior to my event.
Avatar m tn Sometimes a dye may be injected into a vein to highlight blood flow in your arteries and veins, CT angiogram and provide additional detail regarding appearance of brain aneurysm. MRI can create detailed images of your brain and show aneurysm’s location. Hope this helps. Take care.
Avatar n tn has referred me to ENT after CT of lungs and bloodwork came back all okay. He suspects a nodule on my tracheal tube. I cough so much at night, I don't sleep more than 20 - 30 minutes at a time as I wake up choking. I see ENT on Tuesday. When I push on area of neck below my jaw, pain shoots up to my ear (ear ache almost daily), and shoots down my throat. The last 2 days I have been experiencing severe headaches and also worry about stroke.
Avatar f tn My first hematologist also suggested I have an MRA and MRV with contrast. This led to a CT Angiogram of my neck and head b/c the radiologist saw a decreased flow in my left jugular vein in my brain MRI. If he would have looked at my history and the MRIs from 2004, 2006 and 2008 my Neurologist noted this back in 2003 and figures it is congenital. The CT Angiogram was clear.
Avatar n tn I'm glad I'm not alone in all this. For the past 4-5 years I've been dealing with this. At 17, I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia which I've grown out of. My fasting sugar is fine now. Yet there are some mornings where I wake up feeling like I didn't sleep at all, my pulse races to 130 and the nausea is so bad I can't function. Sometimes I throw up, and other times I just dry heave.
Avatar f tn I recently had an angiogram with expected angioplasty to follow. The Doctor said my arteries were too blocked in my lower legs and now reccomends a Cat scan suggesting something from my aeorta is cascading down to my arteries in my lower legs. What does this mean? i am 65 and female. My original complaint was pain in my legs when exercising . I had an ultra sound and it said mild to moderate blockage.
Avatar m tn did MRI, CT,MRA,all with and without contras,even a angiogram all came back normal.her leftside seems as if she had a mini stroke. week arms week legs at one time swollen .waht on earth could be the problem what could be causing such severe headaches,and left side problems please help the dr's are trying every test they can do. Please help.
Avatar n tn ECG's (too many to count) Stress Test Echocardiogram (ultrasound of heart) Event recorder (one month) Upper GI MRI of brain 2 Chest X-rays Chest CT Scan Abdominal CT Scan Blood work (too many to cover here, all normal) After all of these tests they have NEVER found anything wrong with me! Everyone always says anxiety.
Avatar n tn Request a CT scan because an angiogram will not show the bypass if it has closed up. 2. Once the CT scan is produced, the Cardiologist should be able to come up with the best plan of action to rectify the problem. Whether it be a redo-bypass, Stents or other treatment, you want to know the options.
Avatar n tn Hi Jon, My age is 26,no family history of heart dicease ECG--Normal Blood Tests----Normal Thread Mill-----Normal CT-Angiogram---30%blockage(but doctor told no need to worry for another 30 years) Ultra sound-Normal
18997880 tn?1470855256 The angiogram showed some serious blockages but the angiogram was made before the CABG. Now, after the CABG the blocked arteries are bypassed so the findings of the angiogram are no longer valid.
