Re: Mri

I had my last MRI on April after my surgery w/ "dye" they inject ur IV with a fluid which runs up ur jugular vein (sorry about spelling) and gives the x-rays a better and more clear view for the neuro. The only bad affect is a warm feeling at the point of injection and 2 minutes after, but after the MRI is completed u might only feel a bit light headed, but nothing bad. is very helpful to have the contrast MRI done it's very detailed.. Good luck to u, it wont b too long as long as ur not claustrophobic (the tube for me was a bit tight) thats all but they r fast
