I have a question regaring MRI

In the quest tonfind answer to my symptoms nears over the last 12 years have done 20 MRI. Brain,neck and spine. Most were one year apart some ended up being 6 in one year. Thats when I was in hospital for a week and they rpeated them.

Is this something to worry about with thte exposure. Has anyone had so many imaging done.

I had one MRI in my check to make sure I didn't have a brain tumor when I lost my hearing.  So, 20 MRI's sound like a lot to me.

I have only had five or six.

An MRI does not expose you to radiation like a CT scan does so I wouldn't worry too much. Here is an article about mri's

I got this off of wickapedia.

MRI makes use of powerful magnetic fields which, though they have not been demonstrated to cause direct biological damage, can interfere with metallic and electromechanical devices. Additional (small) risks are presented by the radio frequency systems, components or elements of the MRI system's operation, elements of the scanning procedure and medications that may be administered to facilitate MRI imaging.

Hope that it helps some.
