    Urgent MRI gadolinium question

    I am scheduled to have an MRI with gadolinium injection today. I had a neck
    surgery that was done from the front (anterior) and does have a tiatnium
    plate fusion. I was told that titanium is mRI compatiable and that if the
    surgery was done from the front ....t here was NO reason for the gadolinium.

    If I need the gadolinium, my MRI will end at 7PM and I want the best way to
    get that out of my system. Would it be flushing with water, hot air sauna,
    or simple exercise that will cause body to heat up?

    What do you think?

    the resaon for the gado is Because you Have titanium!!!!
    It can produce shadows on the films so that gado gives them a better look, especially if you have stenosis.

    Good luck
