Mri scan safety

Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan safety


Avatar f tn I have submitted to a CT scan, when it was an emergency and the MRI was not available. however in general, all things being equal, an MRI is preferred as having less risk. The MRI machines are rated in Tesla units a "T3" machine can do anything a CT scan can do. All x-ray radiation is dangerous, however this is a risk-benefit situation. There is no doubt that the CT scan saves many lives.
Avatar f tn ggreg's info may be overly cautious. If at all possible, you should get the implant card or operative notes that can identify specifically what aneurysm clips were placed (manufacturer and model) because there are two different concerns with these... The greatest concern is that the clips are made from a (ferro)magnetic material, in which case they can twist and pull near the powerful magnetic field of an MRI. This can be fatal and should not be understated as a risk.
Avatar n tn I was terminated at work for violating a safety procedure which I have never done before, I keep forgeting things like appointments, birthdays etc. I have started to get angry really easy and a bit depressed (which I thought was just dealing with insurance, physical therapy etc). I'm going to tell my doc today what I'm feeling but I feel embarrased because I don't want anyone to think i'm overreacting or looking to "beef up" my lawsuit.

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 I have recently had an MRI scan and the report has indicated that I have a L5/S1 circumferential disc bulge whih displaces the exiting L5 nerve roots bilaterally.. On the left this effaces the perineural fate and contacts the L5 nerve root. A neurosurgeon has apparently reviewed my scan and said there is no evidence of this disc bulge without even seeing me and suggested tertherd cord syndrome should be investigated..
Avatar f tn Hi, last year I had an MRI scan. I was having it as the Dr was looking to see if I had an AVM on the brain, I get a lot of headaches and have an AVM on my right forearm. When I went to see the Dr he told me my results, he said there is a malformation there but it isnt an AVM. He then pointed to the temporal lobes and said they are low. I should of asked him what that meant, but I never ask questions when Im there, I just say to myself I should of asked this and I should of asked that.

Avatar m tn You cannot prove that your original doc was irresponsible, unless you have a witness to him hearing about your sister, AND failing to proceed with reckless disregard for your safety AND the safety of others. Yes, I used to be a lawyer. And you did not get hurt in any of the car crashes. And you continue to drive, when epilepsy is a real, genetic, probability.
