Re: ct angiogram questions
The ct scan is WAY easier than the MRI! My scan of the head and neck only took ten minutes. The dye lit up all my vessels and arteries to look for an aneurysm or stroke. I do not know the results yet, but I do have all the images on a cd. The dye is put in through an IV in your arm. When they inject it you get real warm all over as it travels through your veins. It feels like you wet your pants, but you do not...lol. You know you can always ask for an open MRI. I had one MRI in the tube and threw a fit, since then my dr schedules open MRI's. It's more like a sandwich and you are between two pieces of bread. You can see out all around. Much better than the tube! Hope this answered your question. My dr's are very slow. I will get the results in the mail long before I see my dr again. So I'll be checking that mail every day...lol.
