Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan jewelry


Avatar n tn All that will happen if you do need to ask a question is that they may need to take the image again, from the point of movement, which will add additional time to the scan. As far as what would cause such a sensation; ask the doctor that ordered the MRI to check with a radiologist to find out that answer. It may very well be important, but if they don't know from you that it's a problem that you encountered, then you may never find out. It may very well be nothing of any consequence.
Avatar f tn I have never had a problem with them until my last one a few months back. Just a couple of minutes into the MRI I began to have a pulling sensation in the upper right side of my stomach.It was quite strong and when it did not stop I pushed the emergency bulb they give you to contact them. They stopped the test and pulled me out and I told them what was going on. They asked if I was sure I had no metal in my body and I said no I had none. They said they had no idea what it could have been.
3057101 tn?1360377709 My Doctor concerned with the sensxory disturbance and being unable to stand with my eyes shut, refered me the Neuro, and sent me off to get an MRI of my Brain. Here it goes .

Avatar n tn Normally MRI techs will remove all metallic jewelry etc prior to an MRI scan. A cisternogram is a different type of scan altogether from an MRI scan, although metal objects still need to be removed, and could cause 'artifact'/an artifical black spot (area of decreased radioactive tracer uptake) if not removed.
Avatar f tn PET Scan You will be asked to remove any clothing, jewelry, or other objects that may interfere with the scan. If you are asked to remove clothing, you will be given a gown to wear. You will be asked to empty your bladder prior to the start of the procedure. One or two intravenous (IV) lines will be started in the hand or arm for injection of the radionuclide. For some examinations, the radionuclide may be inhaled in a gas form rather than given through an IV.
697148 tn?1235502941 Hey, Just an update on how things are I went back to hospital and my doctor decided to give me an MRI scan soon. I'm just waiting for a reply from the hospital for an appiontment. Hopefully all will be explained soon. P.
Avatar f tn Hi there, I am so sorry you are having all this pain. You need to be seen by a rheumatologist. They can check and see if you have rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, ankylosing spondylitis, etc. I have arthritis in my spine and I get pain similar to yours and I take a bunch of medication but it doesn't take the pain completely away. I feel for ya, Sweetie. Sorry it has taken so long for a response. I'm sure others here will chime in but I wanted to welcome you to the forum.
1264141 tn?1283882938 which deliver extremely weak levels of radiation per scan. According to the American College of Radiology (ACR), for example, "backscatter technology" delivers radiation equivalent to "flying inside an aircraft for two minutes at 30,000 feet.
Avatar n tn Due to increased fatigue, blurry vision, problems adjusting focus and primarly electric shock sensations and weakness in my limbs for the past month, I am undergoing tests to include brain MRI, bone scan ( I have very tender ribs and sternum) and am scheduled to then see s neurologist. I mentioned Fibromyalgia to my MD and she said she won't give that diagnosis yet since I do have some findings.
Avatar f tn I have had an MRI every year (except last when my insurance wouldn't approve it and had to have a CT scan instead). My recent MRI was yesterday, that I paid for out of pocket, because my insurance still won't approve an open MRI. I was called with the same news as always, today. The doctor received the notes from my MRI, I have the CD to take to my next appointment... and I am told "Everything looks good" but... the thing is, I am in such pain, all the time.
198419 tn?1360245956 Iridologist, Pathologist, Neurologist, Urologist, MRI scan, & GP (local doctor) and MS community support worker to run through injecting drugs. I am the biggest sceptic but a friend begged me to see this Iridologist. I saw her and said my health was good but just wanted a check up. I nearly fell off my chair with the first three questions she asked: 'Do you get headaches?' I do get them from now from spinal pressure but I lied and said no. 'You can't tolerate fatty food can you?
629993 tn?1242962958 My arms are sore as hell, my strength is down to almost zero in my right (dominant) arm --- I had a CT scan. So, now, after a series of C-spine MRI's. a CT scan, nerve conduction test and standard exrays - FIVE different doctors have said there is severe stenosis and impingement at C5, 6 7 and T1-2. Oh yes, a neuro confirmed FMS...that was diagnosed by my original surgeon as "alodynia" for phantom pain with no source. He left the area in a hurry 6 years ago. Gee, I wonder why.
Avatar f tn Migrane related. I get migranes maybe 3 or 4 times a year, but never at the same time as the vibrations in my head, so i never thought to link them. At any rate, I still get the vibration sensations quarterly and the migranes about the same, but at least I know it's not anything really serious. Good Luck!
Avatar n tn The only thing I can say that you will not be able to get MRI scan if you need one because of the metal inside you., Best of luck. Sunes.
Avatar f tn - Chest exray, for heart and rib fusion -CT scan, base of the skull if unlateral -MRI scan, useful to assess the spinal conal and any abnormalities of the spinal colum such as syringomyelia -Ultrasound, for immaging of the urnary tract -Intravenous pyelogram (IVP) -Hearing tests -Genetic counsling may be required Growing may make the two sides of the spine, may make the deformity progressive. Instabillity of the spine requires fixation Neorlogical defects or prosistant pain require surgery.
Avatar n tn I'm allergic to jewelry that's not pure gold or silver. I get horrible rashes. I thought maybe all my problems were a result of my numerous mercury amalgam fillings I've had since I was a small child. I was going to get them all removed but my doctor doesn't believe it's the problem. If I had mercury poisoning, my hair would be falling out. She doesn't believe that cholation therapy is safe. I'll just keep looking for answers like all the rest of you!
Avatar n tn She has been to eye doctors, skin doctors, and they are just trying different meidications with no luck. She is alergic to some metals in jewelry, and that this might be an allergic reaction to titanium. Is there anyone else with this possible problem.
147426 tn?1317269232 I have played around making fiber jewelry, knitting and goofing off. I still have the nasty fatigue, weak right side, incontinence (I'll be commenting on Laura's Botox soon), trigeminal neuralgia, and spasticity, but the Tysabri seems to be keeping it all in check. I asked for some physical therapy last spring to help my increasing weakness. That, apparently was my mistake. On May 30 while getting into my car to go to PT I tripped - I wasn't paying attention.
Avatar n tn The funny part was seeing my navel piercing jewelry show up on the flouroscopy picture. LOL I look so straight, the nurses were chuckling and saying "hey, we got ourselves a sexy mama here and we didn't even know it" I was glad they had a sense of humor. Basically, my Doc wants me to have fusion, and the surgeons asked him to be sure I had this injection done first, as it is diagnostic for them whether I respond to it or not. Doc says I need fusion.
Avatar n tn Last night i was sweating and my skin was warm to touch and yet it was cold to me. I had a ct scan in jan/feb time and was told it was normal...mri about 3 1/2 years ago which apparently was ok. I have an mri of my brain this sunday evening and even though i obviously do not want to have anything awful show up, i'm desperate to know whats wrong with me. I noticed a few posts saying ppl had a normal mri with sensory symptoms so i am hoping for that too.
Avatar n tn You can evalute for this with an upper GI series or upper endoscopy (for an ulcer) or obtaining pancreatic enzymes (via the blood) or a CT scan to evaluate for pancreatitis. If these tests are negative, you can consider musculoskeletal causes or nerve impingement. An MRI of the affected area can be considered if this is suspected. These options can be discussed with your personal physician. Followup with your personal physician is essential.
620923 tn?1452919248 The next time I see my NS I am going to tell him he got my diagnoses wrong, the MRI was wrong, the Radiologist who read the scan was Wrong. I will tell him I am just Anxious & Depressed. Reverse psychology with the expectation that this approach will get him to see the obvious.
Avatar n tn I have an allergy to metals found in cheap jewelry...never got tested, just broken out in rashes before. I see a Rheumatologist for anemia and b12 shots. Just don't know what i should do here. would hate to let the implants fuse to the bone just to find out they were always to blame for making me sick. Any advice/comments?
Avatar n tn the insurance has stopped me from getting pain management to get me off of pain killers. And now i have just had another ct scam and mri. The ct scan shows anther pinched nerve at c7-t1. and the mri should be back this week. Does this ever end and how often does the nerve get pinched again, and my hands are really bad with pain and numbness, my head hurts so bad that no pain meds will help.
Avatar n tn At the same time I was going to a thyroid doctor who checked for diabetes, and many other maladies, checked my thyroid through many tests over many months including swallowing a radioactive pill and then waiting 24 hrs to come back for a scan to see about my thyroid uptake. Body scans for any cancer or tumors or anything that might be causing the burning. I was given Topamax medicine which helped some.
Avatar f tn Exercise makes all of the symptoms worse, as I experience severe aching and muscle twitching after any kind of physical activity. A MRI of the brain and neck revealed increased areas of signal in the brain not consistent with ms. Blood tests suggest autoimmune disfunction (positive ana, antithyroid antibodies, high IgG for parvovirus and EBV and CMV without being conclusive of connective tissue or thyroid disease.

Avatar n tn Makes clubbing and rugby difficult, and I'm fed up with it as it is seriously uncomfortable and embarasing, I'm getting a scan soon after seeing the doctor but he had no idea, I go to the gym am fit and healthy, don't really know wats a hernia is but it could be that but the area of pain is large, help?
Avatar n tn Incredible joint pain with the swelling and such but my labs always came back only slightly elevated, and x-rays showed no damage to my joints at all. An MRI done on my knee for a miniscal tear showed no evidence at all as to why I had been having such a hard time walking due to the pain (aside from the tear but the pain had gone on way before that). I truly believe he thought I was faking it for the meds... he diagnosed me with "Palandromic Arthritis" and pretty much blew me off.
Avatar n tn I, too, had a pelvis and transviginal sonogram and MRI that showed an ovarian cyst around 6CM. Impression was a cystadenoma. Dr. wants to take it out by regular operation. Going for a second opinion on August 20th to see if it can be done laprascopically. Will be saying my prayers for you for tomorrow. I will let you know how everything went tomorrow.
