PET SCAN and scared

Hi everyone,

My name is Candi... I have been dealing with a rare disorder for a few years now and finally a Dr. in CA is taking interest in it. He has invited me to participate in a brain imaging study on patients with the disorder. They want to do VEP, EEG, MRI and a PET scan with radioactive contrast. I am scared to death of flying first of all so that is a hurdle on it's own, but now with the other stuff I don't know what to expect. I hate MRI's and the banging noises, they put me in a trance feeling I hate. Anyone ever do any of these tests?


Thanks so much,

C
