Can Aneurysm Be See On Ct Or Mri Best
Computed tomography is also known as CT scan. 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
Mri said aneurysm 8ml and CT angio said 6m. Which is correct? It's carotid berry anurysim suitable for coiling.Told 1% risk bleed & 7% surgey risk?
I've been having sharp pains in my head. Had a MRI that showed a possible brain aneurysm but they did not see the bump on the mra, what could be wrong?
MRA more definitive: If the mra is negative, you can probably be rest-assured that you don't have an aneurysm. A ct angiogram of the brain provides higher resolution. The MRI looks more at brain tissue so likely had indirect evidence for a possible brain aneurysm but the mra is a more direct brain vascular imaging study, the results of which would trump what the MRI suggested. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
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
Mri or magnetic resonance imaging is one of the more recently developed imaging modalities available to physicians. It uses powerful magnets to generate images. There is no ionizing radiation which is a major advantage over many other modalities. Mri is the best imaging exam that we have for most soft tissue and joint related problems. There are radiologists ...Read more
