Dr. Sean L. Johnston M.D.'s Expert Contributions
  • What are MRI results supposed to indicate?

    That's actually a much larger question. Please consult with your ordering physician what they are interested in finding. Any radiological examination provides a tremendous amount of information, designed to aid referrings into making the best treatment choices, MRI included. READ MORE

  • My son has been having bad headaches. His neurologist is sending him to a radiologist. What can we expect next?

    Most likely the neurologist requested an MRI. Your son will be given a set of headphones to cover his ears and placed in a fairly tight tube. If he is claustrophobic he will not like the procedure, as his head will have to be in the tube. The scan actually takes around a half hour, and the test results will depend on his ability to hold still. Too much motion will cause blurring on the images, which will make interpretation difficult. That being said, the test will be over shortly and you will receive the results most likely within a day. good luck! READ MORE

  • I accompanied my mother for her X-ray and I didn’t know I was pregnant then. What should I do?

    The risk of radiation effects on a fetus for a back radiograph series on a person standing away from the patient is extremely, extremely low. You actually receive over twenty times more background radiation from radon sources in your home than you will from that single medical exposure. So, rest assured and congratulations! READ MORE

  • How can I ensure no other cancer cells are present in my body?

    The best way to check for distant metastases is a separate scan called a PET-CT, which helps detect the presence of cancer cells throughout the body. Periodic surveillance will be necessary, so be sure to keep your appointments and follow the recommendations of your oncologist. Best of luck. Sean L. Johnston, MD, PhD READ MORE

  • What if I'm allergic to contrast?

    Contrast allergies should always be taken seriously. While most people have a similar level of reaction, there are cases where a person with a minor allergy at one session had a major reaction (as in airway compromise) at a later setting. If you need a CT with contrast in the future, you should ask your primary care physician to prescribe the pre-treatment protocol that is in place at your local hospital or imaging center. This usually involves a short course of steroids prior to the administration, which stops the allergic reaction from even starting. READ MORE

  • Is pregnancy possible after chemotherapy?

    It is possible, although much less likely, as chemotherapy tends to hamper fertility. Doesn't make it impossible, but your sister needs to know the odds are a bit against her at this point. Breast feeding will be fine, as the radiation does not cover the opposite breast. Best of luck! READ MORE

  • Airport security and being pregnant

    Hello- Yes, you may go through the scanner at the airport. The radiation dosage is so low that it doesn't pass through the skin, and therefore does not provide any significant increased risk to your fetus. Congratulations! Sean L. Johnston, MD, PhD READ MORE
