Add more time if you move during the study, for that will produce suboptimal (unreadable) images. If you suffer from claustrophobia, the doc can prescribe med for anxiety to relax you during the study. ...Read more

If your doctor recommended it, you should go ahead and have the dye injected. Avoid it if you are allergic to the dye. ...Read more
