I am so upset i am actually going crazy right now..... I was suffering from lightheadness for about 4 weeks before i saw a neurologist he sent me for the tests mri of brain and spine. I came back to him and he said well it doesnt look like you have ms, which is good, but if you want we can do a cat scan angio of your brain to see brain flow, its a cool test you can see your actual arteries.
Not knowing the actual radiation exposure i would get (so stupid) iwent for it and omgggggggggg how i regret it!!!! Pls read up on the radiation dose for anio of the brain, it is the highest lethal dose of scans you can get. One ct will result in 1 in 140 eventually getting cancer. Omggg
pls tell me what is teh reason why doctors send you for this test. If your mris are fine, then what is the reason behind a cat scan of the brain. What happened to benefits outweighting the risks. I feel like i am doomed. I am so scared pls help me!!!!!
