Once the diagnosis is confirmed(e.g. with contrast enhanced MRI) it is debatable whether any follow up at all is necessary. Some physicians may recommend follow up at 6 or 12 months, ultrasound would be the simplest way to do this. ...Read more

Wife had MRI with contrast dye yesterday.  Has blotchey rash predominantly on chest, low back, and abdomen.  Skin is warm.  Face was swollen, has subsided.  Took allegra yesterday & today. Worry?

Improving: If her symptoms are improving on Allegra there should be no permanent harm. It is important that you report this allergic reaction to the radiology department and to your physician so that this contrast agent will not be used on you in the future. In addition see to it that this allergy is listed in your records. ...Read more
