Avatar n tn They can however, detect mental illness such as scitzophreneia which i know because i was diagnosed through an MRI. The only mental illness an MRI scan able detect is an actually different brain connections than that of a normal brain. Ive had one done for mental illess! Can you describe some of your symptoms, what you feel and how often yolou feel it? I know your question is based on needing to know where to get a private MRI scan, which i am unsure of!!
Avatar f tn My next step is to pay privately for an mri of the head my doctors have been ignoring me for over a year & I have now reached the stage I cannot approach them anymore I wouldn't know where to start for an ent but I've found where they do the scans why do you advise that??
Avatar f tn I have had countless GP appointments as well as appointments with physio and orthopaedics. I have an MRI scan done through them and also privately. My MRI results showed up no abnormalities despite the consultant physically feeling the dent I have in my leg and declaring that it is still swollen (this was over a year after the event). I asked them when given the result what the dent was and the swelling to which they replied they think it’s tissue damage.

Avatar f tn I booked a private scan for 16 weeks 1 day, it cost me £79 and I found out I was having a girl.
Avatar f tn Is it necessary to have more than one MRI scan 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.
1532707 tn?1312155924 d go with whatever costs the least. In some places, the cost is by body part and there is no cost differential between 1.5T and 3.0T. The other part of the argument is that in many metro areas, 1.5 T machines will begin to phase out over the next few years and it might be worth "rebaselining" now. The current direction with the 7.0 T machines seems to indicate that they will be pushed out for neuro-imaging as quickly as they can be.
335728 tn?1331414412 He swore up and down that he knew what he was talking about until I went and got my own MRI that cost close to $2000.00 privately and it showed definite changes in comparison to the report from my original MRI!!!! I really thought that getting rid of that bone headed doctor would make my life easier...apparently not...I sort of feel like I have a "KICK ME" sign on my back! I don't know what I am looking for here but I am really frustrated and not too sure what to do.
Avatar f tn You can see a neuro privately. It cost me 90.00 for 25 minutes consult but your GP has to refer you to see a neurologist..... Now look i havent spoken to my neuro for ages, but I wrote him urgently about my change in my hand symptoms and asked him if he would refer me for a private MRI which he agreed to straight away I even sent him 50.00 for the admin and he sent me the cheque back he didnt want it which pleased me. So yes you have to be referred. There is an MRI centre in sussex.
1036535 tn?1278502599 I was in Emergency and had an MRI and CT scan that day. Recently I had an MRI ordered from an internists office and he wrote on the request that it was not urgent. I ended up paying for 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 cost to him at all. Our system is far from perfect, but it's there for everyone.
2021910 tn?1339896686 Im having a privste 4D scan which tells you the gender early.
Avatar m tn 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).
Avatar f tn It could cost thousands..
Avatar f tn If I paid privately it will cost me something around £200 for a 1 hour appointment. I have £200 which I was saving for something else, and will probably reduce the wait to only 2 weeks. I know that the consultant may not be able to diagnose what may be wrong in the first assessment and it may take many visits, but is it worth the money for possible quicker peace of mind? The 2 month wait is really going to aggravate me.
Avatar n tn You can always ask questions privately but it is so much better to do it on the open forum where everyone can see it and help with the answers. We all have different areas of expertise and reading MRI's is not one of mine.
Avatar n tn An ultrasound and an uptake scan are different tests. :o) Didn't know FNA's were so expensive though...ouch.
Avatar m tn did they order a follow up with an MRI ? this usually gives a better picture on what it is. I can tell you that most lesions on the liver are hemangiomas which are benign and nothing to worry about.
Avatar f tn I'm having one next week I'll be 16 weeks 1 day and I'm worried incase they tell me the wrong sex as I've read on the Internet sometimes they do (ill get confirmation at 20 week scan) my mum in law got me it privately at a present
Avatar f tn 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. Thank you!
987762 tn?1331027953 The MRI 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.
