Avatar n tn Which test would be better to detect a bone metastasis, bone scan or cat scan? I have heard that most bone metastasis from breast cancer are osteolytic and might not show up well on a bone scan. Is this true?

The pain has has not gone away and I cannot get in to see my oncologist for another month.
Avatar n tn They can however, detect mental illness such as scitzophreneia which i know because i was diagnosed through an MRI.

Avatar f tn d trust your cardiologist or doctor to explain the significance to you, sometimes, readings and interpretations are not always what they appear, many people have needlessly worried about test results. I just read one about an EKG that showed one symptom, the Echo Test saying no problem existed. The EKG interpreter even suggested the Echo tech didn't know what they were doing, it was subsequently discovered that the Echo tech was correct.
Avatar f tn I am not a doctor but my son has had both of these test many times. A ct shows bone. A mri is the better test for nerves, cord, and disc etc. It is much clearer. In my sons case ct missed his cord contusion and compression fractures. Ct only showed a small fracture to the bone. Unfortunately everthing I have read regarding fusion and surgeries in the spinal vertebrae, there is always pain. I believe it takes one year for the spinal vertabrae to heal.

No discrete parenchymal masses nor evidence of mass effect. There is a slight inferior displacement of the cerebellar tonsils, suggesting a mild chiari 1 malformation. No extra-axial blood or fluid collections are identified.

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.
