Definitely an MRI. Don't know if you know this but CT Scans aren't good for you. They are used entirely too much. Information I have read says that one CT scan is equivalent to 10,000 xrays! We are causing cancer to ourselves with these. MRI uses magnet. Imaging with sound (ultrasound) and magnets are better and less dangerous. Unfortunately, it is insurance companies that are pushing these tests because they're cheaper. Insurance companies are killing us. I find it interesting that people are afraid of death panels when that is exactly what insurance companies already are. They decide what tests, meds, surgeries etc.,That we can have. Not to mention that if you don't have insurance, you're up the creek. In America, if you work you don't qualify for any help at the clinics, and if you don't work what are you supposed to do to survive? This is what most people who have insurance don't realize is happening to millions of people. Even if they don't realize it, more importantly most of them claim to be good Christians, but don't care about what others don't get for healthcare or if they're suffering and dying. It isn't as easy as people think to get free care or free anything. I've worked since 15 years old. I was dumped by insurance. Doctors say I should be disabled but to do that I would have to lose my business and stop working. Then become homeless. I doubt I would live long enough to get the free stuff I have earned already by working all my life. I'm so sick now I can barely get up and dress myself. I pray for answers every day. I ask for prayers from everyone too. If you are having headaches or anything else, please look up magnesium chloride. I have found in research that most of us are magnesium deficient. Its so simple. I am now treating myself with it. Magnesium is responsible for over 400 bodily functions. It is amazing. I hope everyone who sees this looks it up. Seriously, not just crazy. Look it up. It treats so many illnesses its incredible! There are many studies but yet the medical community and pharmaceutical companies would rather we keep going to the doctor, getting expensive tests, and pay for prescription drugs that are harmful to us. Its about the business of making $$$ and a boost to the economy. Why don't you ever hear the doctor say he wants to look at the mineral levels in your blood? That would be too easy and cheap. Thats why. I hope you look at magnesium chloride, raising the Ph in your body(baking soda), AND how many of us have leaky gut. Doctors are trying not to recognize it. Dr. Oz had it on his show. A writer for the New York times ended up curing her son from crippling arthritis by looking beyond her doctor who prescribed chemo drug for 3 yr old. Sorry for being so long winded but I hope that people will see this and look at something other than doctors and pharmaceutical answers. Please look at the magnesium and other minerals you probably don't have enough of in you body. When you see the list of what magnesium treats it will blow your mind. It sure got me thinking. I'm not one of those natural medicine kind of people. I have been on a whole list of drugs for years and continually get worse. After seeing what magnesium chloride and gallium nitrate can do for the horrible arthritis that is completely covering my body, I figure what can it hurt to look at these things. I can tell you the magnesium had done wonders already for depression, anxiety (its calming to nerves), and think it's helping the inflammation and stiffness. Also my headaches! Btw, there are real MD's that practice functional medicine. Its fairly young but this is the practice of finding out whats causing our ailments. Imagine that! Not just writing prescriptions and doing unnecessary surgeries. Haven't had a headache since starting the magnesium supplements. Also my depression is way down. Good luck to you. Stay away from CT scans. If you don't believe, do the reading. God bless you all.
An MRI shows more definition than a CT scan does. However, to get a good view of the vascular system they inject dye and then "snap" the pictures as the dye travels through "whatever" let's say the brain. This test is called a MRA. My neurologist orders it to check the growth of my brain tumor that's wrapped around a vein in my brain along with a standard MRI. Hope that helps.
