Avatar m tn It makes no difference whether it is closed bore or not. The imaging principle remains the same. It is the contrast agent that enhances the images. While not all MRIs require contrast, it can be very beneficial in certain cases to show certain anatomy more clearly. It improves diagnostic accuracy, especially in cases of certain tumors, blood vessels, inflammation or infection. MRI contrast agents do not contain iodine and rarely cause allergic reactions or other problems.
Avatar m tn A CT of the abdomen and pelvis was performed utilizing contiguous axial images prior to contrast administration. Additional delayed images were also obtained. Comparison: Sonogram of the abdomen: Findings; The liver is slightly enlarged and hypodense in relation to the spleen. Two focal hapatic lesions are noted one in the dome of the liver and the other in the right lobe correspond to the two nodules seen in the sonogram.

Avatar m tn Doctor iam a scheduled for a ct of my abdomen and pelvis next week, Been unable to eat much/nauseous and occasional blood in stool with stool forms changing daily.

Avatar f tn Hi all. I recently had a back mri scan with the use of contrast dye as I had a discectomy November 2018 . I paid for the scan image on cd but haven’t had the results yet. Obviously I’m not medically trained so have no idea what the images look like however I wondered if anyone know what the few blobs are on a image that are next to the spine? As they came back as a white glow.

Avatar n tn reveals the presence of a few scattered high signal foci in the deep white matter bilaterally on T2 weighted images and FLAIR without corresponding findings of T1 weighted images. These are primarily periventricular nature although there is some extension into the centrum semiovale. Similar changes are noted in the brainstem. There is no associated mass effect or edema.
Avatar f tn Hi. I'm 26, female, BMI=26. I've been having dull pain and pressure in under my rib cage on the left side and in my lower back for a couple of years now. The first time this happened, I had abdominal and pelvic ultrasounds and they found some fairly large functional ovarian cysts. Those soon shrunk to almost nothing, while the pain has increased. I've had a number of blood tests and everything has come back fine. My doctor has now ordered a CT scan.
382218 tn?1341181487 I'd be interested in others' experiences as well. I already have CT and MRI images that show the problem pretty well, but my doc & I have never discussed it, as we're always looking at other things, for which those images were produced. Still, I've had nasal problems all my life, and I've wondered what might be possible.
Avatar m tn If you are concerned about the small dose of radiation from a CT scan ask for an MRI. It is much more expensive but can perform the same function with even higher resolution then a CT scan. MRI scan are many times used after HCC is diagnosed to assess small changes in the cancer's status. Of course make sure your health insurance will cover the MRI scan. The chances of developing HCC is you don't have cirrhosis are very low. Typically only cirrhotics are screened for HCC.
1252074 tn?1271541709 I would ask to get a referral to an MS specialist. I wouldn't wait until your second MRI. I'm surprised you weren't seeing one in light of your history of seizures because something is obviously going on in your brain. Lesions next to ventricles are common places of MS attacks. See this medical article: http://www.direct-ms.org/pdf/CCSVI/Adams%20perivenous%20lesions%20MS%2087.
Avatar n tn We are very confused. Could they have read the MRI images incorrectly? The initial MRI images were also seen by our family physician who stated he also saw something. Thank you for any insight you can give us.
