This way the body is shown in slices, in any plane, usually axially, but ...Read more

Is it safe to do MRI with contrast to see AVM / aneurysm if i had at CT with contrast anaphylaxis shock ? Or how can do it otherwise ? Thank a lot.

Is it safe to do MRI with contrast to see AVM / aneurysm if i had at CT with contrast anaphylaxis shock ? Or how can do it otherwise ? Thank a lot.

Different: X-ray (CT) contrast is iodine based and allergic reactions are fairly common. MRI uses Gadolinium which is completely different and allergic reactions are rare. Here is a reference: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/92774.php I'm not aware of any cross-reactivity but the radiologist supervising your study will know for sure. Mention your previous reaction to them. ...Read more

Blood pressure check: If the stroke was so small it could not be found on ct scan, but had to be discovered by mri, it is probably not significant to cause any symptoms. What is significant about strokes like this is that they are often related to high blood pressure. High blood pressure can also cause headaches, and may be the link to your headache. You need to see a doctor. ...Read more

What is the best way to check for possible ♥ condition? Pet, mri, CT or combination? How about mdct? Thank you

Depends: If you're having symptoms such as chest pain, a stress test (or nuclear stress test) might be the best way to check you. If you're not having symptoms, but want some idea about your risk of developing heart disease, a chest ct to look for coronary artery calcium is often the way to go. ...Read more
