MRI ; CT on same day: Yes, both can be performed on the same day. However, if there is any history of renal insufficiency, and if contrast is being administered (depending upon the type of pathology one is looking for), they may have to be performed on separate days or without contrast, depending on severity of renal disease.

Xray and no symptoms: I suspect the chest xray was obtained when the baby had symptoms. A follow-up is needed to assure resolution in 1 to 2 months. The image appearance may linger for weeks to months after the symptoms resolve. If the appearance become chronic, then you have to consider congenital anomalies, large airway obstructions, or chronic aspiration. But, cross that bridge only if the x-ray does not improve.

Preganancy after ect: You may still become pregnant. The lack of one fallopian tube may make this more challenging and it may take longer than you might otherwise expect. Ultrasound may be helpful to determine when your left ovary is about to produce a potentially fertilizeable follicle. You should see a fertility specialist. If you are already, a second opinion may also be valuable.
