Mri scan techniques

Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan techniques


Avatar m tn s wrong but all imaging techniques have limitations. I would try to get your doctors to do a MRI or at least explain why they are comfortable with what data the CT has provided. If they're happy, at least let you know why, they work for you.
Avatar n tn For some insight, the assessment of left and right ventricular diastolic function (filling phase) at rest in patients with enlarged heart and/or decreased ejection fraction, can be done in an excellent way using Doppler – echocardiographic methods or other imaging techniques (CT scan, MRI, etc), the assessment of LV diastolic function at Rest & with Exercise in subjects/patients with small LV cavity and normal LV ejection fraction, can at best be done by using an optimal EXTERNAL PRESSURE

1140169 tn?1370185076 The MRV was done in a 3T MRI machine. It took about 1 1/4 hours to complete the scan, with dye being injected through intervenous for the last few minutes. The scan felt a little tighter than other MRI's I've had, due to a piece of hardware that clips on about an inch from your face, and something they place on your chest which kind of holds your chin still.
Avatar f tn Hi, thanks for your reply. The MRI and CT scan came out fine. As i stated i am working on my migraines with my Dr. and have been for the past seven years. As far as the drainage it is very difficult to collect. I am not sure my question was answered though ... i am wondering if there is any link between my nasal drainage and possible puncture from my epidural and any link between those and my migraines? Also, how would i check to see if in fact there is a puncture in my spine?
Avatar m tn ve seen a head specialist and had a mri scan, and everything came back normal. they just told me it was a tension headache. they gave me pills what had no effect. i've been to a massage specialist which didn't ease it. so i'm at a loose end to wot it is or any i can do to ease it or get rid. it feels like pressure all over my head like it going to explode not massively painful just more a numb pain.
Avatar n tn I had a brain mri scan for recurrent 'auras' thought to be due to migraine. The result of the scan came back normal except for a few spots of plaques. I am 50, is this normal? I am concerned that it is indicative of early degeneration associated with dementia.
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.
