Warren Janowitz MD's Expert Contributions
MRI is same with no radiation. There is a small risk from the contrast. He also may need to be sedated. You should discuss these issues with the radiologist doing the test. READ MORE
The facility where he is getting the scan should give him instructions. The PET scan should include the whole body and will show areas of increased metabolism. Usually, not only, a tumor. Biopsies may be needed afterwards for a definitive dx READ MORE
There is a PET agent that binds to amyloid which is increased in the brain of Alzheimer’s patients. FDG is also used but not as accurate. READ MORE
Sedation is used sometimes in children. Make sure that the facility knows about your concerns and is able to do sedation. Occasionally children need to be anestisized, usually for MRI, and an anesthesiologist should be present. READ MORE
No READ MORE
Difficult to answer. Most reports are accurate but tumors can be missed due to multiple reasons such as size and location. Even good radiologists can miss lesions that we’re there in retrospect. Missing a lesion is not necessarily malpractice unless it is obvious and would have been seen by a average radiologist READ MORE
Possibly but not necessarily. CT would be more accurate if needed. READ MORE
Should have no problems if without contrast. With contrast reactions are rare. Should talk to technologist or radiologist about potential complications. READ MORE
Usually requires a biopsy. Rarely imaging characteristics are highly suggestive but best to confirm. READ MORE
Difficult to answer with limited info. Generally an abdominal ultrasound is done first followed if needed by a CT. However different work up may be needed depending on symptoms and other findings. Would see her doctor first and follow his or her recommendations. READ MORE
No READ MORE
Only defects that produce anatomic abnormally can be seen by ultrasound. Genetic tests such as amniocentesis can detect many genetic abnormalities. READ MORE
The CT cannot tell the difference between benign and malignant masses in most cases. A biopsy is usually required. READ MORE
It doesn’t. If the 2nd was done with contrast, it might mask the stone. I would check with radiology to check for an error. READ MORE
The amount of radiation you would have been exposed to would be minimal. It is extremely unlikely to have any adverse effects on your baby. Just have your normal prenatal studies. READ MORE
Chest X-ray shows a 2-d image of a 3-d structure, the lungs. CT gives a 3-d image with much more details and is better for diagnosis. READ MORE
Nuclear Medicine involves the use of radioisotopes for medical imaging. Common procedures are bone scans, stress nuclear cardiac imaging and thyroid scans. PET imaging is also part of NM. Some therapeutic procedures such as treating hyperthyroidism and some cancers are also done. NM physicians can do a 4 year NM residency, though most do diagnostic Radiology and subspecialize in NM. READ MORE
No way to predict. Could happen but sounds like radiation is necessary. READ MORE
The CT scan gives much more detailed information about what is going on in the lungs. Can be very helpful in making an accurate diagnosis. READ MORE
Open MRI have less resolution due to weaker magnetic field. In general closed MRI are better unless you are claustrophobic. Closed MR may be OK if high resolution not needed. READ MORE
There are protocols to premeditate patients with contrast allergies using steroids and antihistamines. Should be safe. READ MORE
Radiology equipment is safe. Only problem would be if you need contrast and have an allergy. Abnormal kidney function can also be an issue if you need contrast. READ MORE
Airport scanners do not penetrate the skin and are no risk to the fetus. You can always ask to be screened manually. READ MORE
