Changes in MRI in T-1 and T-2 weighted signals

Now the Dr. wants a bone scan!!!!!!!!!!
I am terrified.
Does anyone know what this means? They were very vague about it all.
I have it tomorrow morning at 7am.

Re: Changes in MRI in T-1 and T-2 weighted signals

Hi there, sometimes it is the vagueness that makes a patient more anxious instead of the intended opposite.

I had a full body bone scan last month. My neurologist was vague too, which made me nervous enough to go to the hospital to request my MRI report. My bone scan was to make sure that what was visible on my MRI was not a tumor.

Your MRI showed something that the radiologist recommended needs further investigation. Your doctor may have ordered the bone scan to rule out fractures or, as in my case, neoplasm.

I was injected a radioactive material 3 hours prior. Drank insane amounts of water to help my bones absorb it and to flush it through my kidneys.
The scan took about half an hour. I got to see the image on a computer screen as it scanned. I thought it was really cool. I received the results of the scan 2 days later.

I know how difficult and stressful it is to not know and having to wait for answers. Hang in there. Treat yourself to something nice, movies, visit friends ... anything to keep your mind occupied with something pleasurable.
