Yasargil Aneurysm Clips Mri
Both safe: Both also have risks such as radiation and contrast usage. Coronary arteriography has small bleeding risk at puncture site. Need to get the right test for your problem. Coronary arteriography is the gold standard. ...Read more
Mri or magnetic resonance imaging is one of the more recently developed imaging modalities available to physicians. It uses powerful magnets to generate images. There is no ionizing radiation which is a major advantage over many other modalities. Mri is the best imaging exam that we have for most soft tissue and joint related problems. There are radiologists ...Read more
Mri said aneurysm 8ml and CT angio said 6m. Which is correct? It's carotid berry anurysim suitable for coiling.Told 1% risk bleed & 7% surgey risk?
Ct vs cath: In simplest terms the ct angiogram would be safer than a coronary angiogram, however, they are usually used in different circumstances. The ct angiogram is useful as a screening tool to see if coronary disease is present. A cardiac catheterization is performed when a patient has an acute coronary syndrome or a myocardial infarction to evaluate coronary disease, or even treated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
CT scan: It depends what do you call a regular ct scan but usually IV contrast dye is needed to visualize the aneurysm. There are non contrast exams and others where IV contrast is employed. Where is the aneurysm located ?. If it's large and calcified and perhaps located in the abdomen or chest it can be suggested by the non contrast ct. An ultrasound can detect readily in the abdominal aorta. ...Read more
Not likely: Most intracranial vascular anomalies, including aneurysms, require IV contrast to be seen on ct head. However, ct without contrast is 90% sensitive for intracranial bleeding. The risks of IV contrast for ct include kidney injury and allergy to contrast dye. Good luck! ...Read more
Brain MRI July2015 8mm calcified meningioma anterior front region, August 2016 a 5mm aneurism right MCA bifurfication. Are these 2 findings related?
No: Both are fairly common. I hope neither becomes troublesome ...Read more
TIA while driving hi-way! Hospital did CT, MRI, ECG, EKG, Echo of neck & heart. MRI/ CT showed many tiny strokes! What tests next? See's Cardio Wed.
No: Echocardiography is cheaper, has no radiation, and is accurate. I routinely follow patients with thoracic aortic aneurysms with annual echos. ...Read more
Would a regular MRI w/contrast on brain reveal severe vertebral artery insufficiency/stenosis causing vertigo?
Carotid artery disease, different results from duplex ultrasound vs. Ct angiogram (cta), is that possible?
CT angiogram: A regular ct scan might detect a large aneurysm with calcium. A test that is designed specifically to look for aneurysms is the ct angiogram. With this test contrast goes into the vessels of the brain. If there is an aneurysm that is larger than 2 mm, it should be detected with this technique. ...Read more
