Liver impairment

They are trying to determine how much good liver tissue is there. We can do this by which parts take up contrast and how long they "hold" it for.

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

Allegra
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.

Yes and also other

Magnetic_resonance_imaging
things like a post operative fluid collection or abscess. MRI does not use ionizing radiation and is also safe and can use safe contrast. www.safecontrast.com Read more about why MRI of the pelvis is a good test after an ultrasound. CT scans are also good but use a lot of radiation and cause cancers in 1in 500 to 1 in 1000 patients ten years later.

MRI or CT?which method is more safe for evaluating pulling pain in lower abdomen?

MRI prob better

Magnetic_resonance_imaging
MRI is better for defining abnormalities in soft tissues, and uses on ionizing radiation, so it is safer. Of course, you want the test that will provide you and your doctor the answer to your problem, if possible.
