Here's my thought...: First, we need to ask if the us study is reasonably enough to be more suggestive of benign cyst and if ct or MRI is really needed. If more favoring benign cyst, a follow-up us in 6-12 months would be sufficient. If really worrying about tumors such as wilm's tumor, ct or MRI is mandatory ; can be done safely under sedation or even anesthesia. Of note, modern monitoring for anesthesia is very safe. ...Read more
I had an abdomen scan last week. I have go for an MRI as shadows on the liver and fat around the liver and slightly enlarged gallblader. I am worried?
Liver lesion: If a focal liver lesion is identified on CT, it should be seen on MRI. MRI may help to provide a more specific diagnosis. It may not be nothing, but it may be benign. For example, hemangioma is a common benign liver lesion requiring no treatment. Contrast enhanced MRI (and contrast enhanced CT for that matter) tailored for liver lesion evaluation can help make the diagnosis. ...Read more
Why is taking a mri scan with braces possible but wearing chains and rings strictly prohibited? What prevents the machine from affecting them?
