MRI?: Pulmonary emboli are uncommonly seen on MRI but are commonly detected with ct pulmonary angiogram.

I have a blood clot in my right atrium attached to the catheter on my chemo port. Have had multiple TEEs. Is MRI a better way to tell what it really is?
No. Ultrasound.: In all likelihood, the MRI won't reveal any more information than what ultrasound has already determined (TEE is a type of echocardiogram or ultrasound of the chest). TEE checks for migration (movement) of the clot & it's size. An MRI is an expensive way to do that; TEE is "as-good". If you're being treated w/ blood thinners, stay the course for 6 mo as clots can take long time to shrink. Patience ...Read more

Wear some type of compressive anklet while walking. ...Read more
