Re: Cat scan question
No, CT scans and MRI's are different in what they show. MRI's show the soft tissues, whereas the CT scans show the structural areas, if I am remembering correctly. CT scans will not show brain lesions, for instance, in the white matter.
Also, do NOT rely on the doctors to call you if something is wrong. I have had numerous MRI's, etc. and I cannot tell you how many times the lab doesn't send the reports to the doctor and they don't call and ask for them. Over and over I have had doctors tell me to call and check back on reports, to make sure they came in.
