Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan cost ireland
Is it necessary to have more than one MRIscan done. I have only ever had the one scan, 15 yrs ago which was when I was given my official dx, despite having several episodes/relapses since. Initially told I had RRMS now being told I have SPMS with relapses.
I didnt even see any midwife and i have 50 or so days left till my due date.. I only heard my lil ones heart beat because they thought i was in prem labour.. The health system here is so different to other places.. I find there useless here.. How far along are you gone??
Went to see neuro yesterday about dmd, she suggested Natalizumab if i was suitable for it, after she has done another MRI to check if I still have active lesions. Although she pointed out that it has a better % results to lessen relapses, she also said there is a 1 in 1000 chance of death through getting a brain infection.
I had an MRI of the brain back in May, to investigate various cognitive / neurological problems I've been experiencing since the start of 2009 (mild confusion, memory problems, muscle twitching, etc). This came back normal (I have neither copies of the scans , nor the radiographers report - just a letter from neurologist saying all findings were normal).
I am now waiting for my results from my mriscan and feel like its taking forever even though its only been a week. Can't stop thinking about it. Does anyone know roughly how long it will take to get the results in the uk?
s for each area, Brain MRI w/wo contrast,,,,a cervical spine MRI, a thoracic spine MRI and lumbar spine MRI....then of course the CINE MRI....I know it's alot, and I felt I should be a walking magnet....lol...

The purpose of a MRI or magnetic resonance imaging machine, is to harmlessly work out what internally is physically wrong with you, without involving exploratory surgery. MRIs have 3 types: conventional, open bore and fully open. In an conventional MRI, a long toroidal (Doughnut-shaped) electromagnet supplies the electromagnetic force, and the subject is put through a long 'tunnel', where a full-body scan is supplied.
I had my 12 week scan in Hungary, and the doctor gave me all the papers I should give to my gp when I get back. As soon as I came home I visited the doctor and gave her everything. She said they'll send a letter to the hospital with my details, and the hospital should send me a letter with my 20 week appointment. Im 20+1 today and still no letter, and I've been calling the gp every week since I've been 16 weeks to make sure they sent it.
This MRI is designed to collected special pictures of your brain and neck. The MRI will last 60-90 minutes.
Doppler ultrasound: A non-invasive test that uses reflected sound waves to evaluate blood as it flows through a blood vessel. It helps doctors evaluate blood flow through the major arteries and veins of the arms, legs, neck and more recently with the new instruments also the flow trough the brain.
It's not a cost issue. My doctor doesn't want to send me to MRI nor CT scan. She says that i don't need to do MRI, because CT didn't showed anyting abnormal, and that i am too young for serious disorders. I find this strange, because it was 8 years ago, and i assume that something could changed. Or maybe i'm wrong?
is an MRI or an ultrasound as accurate as a CT scan in determining if the spot on my liver is a hemangioma and not cancerous? Other than cost, is there a reason I should have a CT scan instead of an MRI? I would rather not have the radiation exposure of a CT scan if an MRI will produce adequate data. Furthermore, should I see a specialist instead of my PCP about this?
One more thought about the cost - did they give you a price for the MRI test? See if you can get that negotiated rate like they do with the big insurance companies. I'm with Anthem and it seems to me they only pay about 20-25% of the rate that is billed for my MRI's. It would be great if you could get this worked out too.
Anyone else had there 34 week growth scan, which are normal in Northern Ireland. And are.measuring two weeks ahead, and on the details sheet due date went down to the 4th Aug I think it was when my due date is 10th Aug. Will I still go by my 10th Aug date or earlier?
If you have a choice for your MRI, Make sure your MRI is a proper pituitary MRI at a place where they do them a lot - it should be dynamic, with and without contrast.
Headaches are common and a twitching eye could be a side effect.
OK ask questions there are many of us around- Welcome to the club. Sorry that you find yourself here though.
Nevertheless, if you feel strongly about not having a CT scan, you can call your doctor and tell him or her that you want an MRI instead of a CT scan. But be aware that your insurance may decline to cover the cost of the MRI since CTs are the standard for a 21 y/o male patient.
As the CT scan report was normal and since there was no MRIscan facility in the hospital the patient was not shifted immediately to another one. The doctor of the hospital to which he was later admitted mentioned about the delay. that is why i felt so. Do you think that the CT scan report which mentioned "brain-stem normal" was correct?
