Can Aneurysm Be See On Ct Or Mri Best
Ct uses xrays taken an 360 degrees combined with a computer to see"inside" the body. The table moves as the xray tube and detectors spin around the patient 10 times a second or more! the image shows excellent soft tissue detail, enhanced with injection of intravenous contrast or oral contrast. 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.
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

I had a minor stroke in march so small CT coudbt see it MRI found it deep in whie matter been having bad haedaches so had anther MRI now imajor how ?
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can an mri-us- or CT scan see if there's something in my kidney or something. I have this constant dull right side pain. Right on the side though.?
Yes: But uncertain what you have already had done. Usually would want to start with a history & physical exam with your doctor & blood & urine tests. The locations of pains do not always indicate which organ may be the cause of pains. Ultrasound can see organs, and sometimes a ct or MRI may be better. Each person's conditions may indicate which testing is best. ...Read more
It depends: Chest ct is more commonly used to evaluate the lungs, blood vessels, bones, and soft tissues. Chest mri, which takes longer to perform, is typically reserved for evaluation of diseases of the blood vessels (aorta, etc.), the heart, or masses that need to be further characterized. Chest ct is better at evaluating the lungs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Doctor refuses to request MRI because CT was normal. Even thought I have been have headaches since I was 6. Is he right? Or should I see other doctor?
Headaches: MRI could show some abnormalities that are not seen, or are difficult to see, on CT scan. Your doctor knows your entire clinical picture, and is in the best position to guide further testing. However, it is your right to seek a second opinion if you do not feel confident in your current doctor's care. ...Read more
Can MRI scan be used instead of CT scan to assess the bronciectasis b4 a possible surgery, ?Or as substitute to CT scan 2 see progress?
Had CT scan b4
CT only: It is obvious that you wish to avoid ionizing radiation. However MRI is difficiult in imaging lungs of low density tissue, air-tissue interfaces causing artifacts, and respiratory, cardiac, and vascular motions.These are technicalities without any control. Ct is by far the choice for imaging bronchiectasis. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
