Had my cervical/thoracic MRI this AM. It was ordered "with contrast", however the tech said they may not need the contrast. I said "I thought the contrast made lesions brighter and more noticeable"? She said, "well, if the radiologist feels he has enough info to make a diagnosis, we won't need the contrast". We DID NOT need the contrast. So, this tells me they found lesions? What do you guys think? I have to wait two days and give them a call for results. The tech is also aware that I have spine (deg disk disease). This was a VERY long MRI - I was almost at my wits end, I was hurting all over the place and I squeezed the ball and asked her how much more longer. She said we are done. I spent 1.5 hrs in that tube, uuuugggggh! My neuro appt isn't until 12/5.
