Re: Nerve Damage Pain
since this does not seem to be detailed enough, you are in luck if you can get to a place that has another type of MRI called a 3 T or3 tesla scan? they had to use this on my brain when they were trying to better define my brain aneurysm back in 2005? this particular type of scan actually uses three times the magnetism than the more standard MRI does. believe me, it did show things much more in depth and much more clearly too. i would ask your neuro about seeing if this would just be one possible he could try and track down for you? back in 05 i do know there were not alot of these types of MRI machines around(i am sure it is not as rare as it was five years ago now), but if there is one close by where you live, i do think this could be the ideal way for you to actually obtain that very best look in there right now. just something i know they used for me and it did not actually even require contrast. i have a kidney disease so i just have to decline contrast, thats why they actually sent me for the 3T in the first place actually. i hope this helps some. let me know what you find out. good luck,marcia
