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!!!!!

Please calm your self. You are not doomed.

you can not believe 99.9 of the stuff you find on the internet.

I have had so many CT, MRIs and scans, the last one came back 'grossly clear'

Have your doc run a blood scan for thyroid. Once they balance my thyroid, my lightheadedness went away and so did some of my depression.

did not help my migraines. Can not have it all though.

Hopeing you feel better.

Thank you so much Trina for responding to me. I am in panic mode now. I need to stop googling but I am terrified!!! I feel like I have fried my insides. Can I ask you when was your first scan? Aren't you afraid of cumulative radiation? Does the doctor discuss with you potential risks of radiation, did you have ct Angio dir your lightheadedness? Thank you so much

My first CT scan was in 2006, the last was in 2014. Almost every other year.
Mri's just about the same. Every time I change neurologist looking for an answer to severe head pain. Just this of the people who are radiologist for a living? They would not do it if it was that dangerous.

found the answer at John Hopkins, now go to Thomas Jefferson in PA .

I believe we receive more radiation from cell phone usage and high wire towers [if you live near one]

Some docs are just so scared of malpractice that they have to disclosed EVERYTHING! They are catastrophists. Nothing you can do about it.

Give yourself peace, you are taking away your joy and health for now reason.

For every 1,000 20-year-old women who have a multiphasic abdominal and pelvic CT, about 4 will develop cancer directly due to the test.!!!! That is so scary I had ct Angio the number is much greater I think 1 in 270, that is so scary!!!

Pls help me, what did I do to myself, I feel like I am doomed!!!
