If The CT Scan Results And Normal Head X-ray Results Do MRIs Need To Be Done?
Hello doctor, my husband feels dizzy seven times and if he sees something always shaded and if he eats as much as nausea and vomiting, and his blood is also only 90 years diagnosed by the doctor if my husband has vertigo and magh but on CT and scan results it is normal. and doctors recommend an MRI to detect the cause of the vertigo
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Impaired vision, dizziness due to vertigo, nausea, vomiting and low blood pressure can be caused by a variety of things, starting due to inflammation of the balance center in the inner ear, can be due to the deposition of balance organs, balance nerve disorders, psychological disorders, and disorders of the brain . Furthermore, these symptoms can also consist of various separate diseases, making the possibility of complaints so much broader.
In order to make a diagnosis, the doctor will need to dig deep into the patient's disease history, and conduct a physical examination to support the exploration of his history. If the patient's illness is still unclear, the doctor needs a supporting examination. Among the investigations are examples of x-rays, CT scans and MRI. Each test has its own level of accuracy, and MRI is indeed the most complete. MRI can provide body structures that do not appear on tests such as x-rays, ultrasound and CT scans.
So indeed if the suspicion really leads to certain disorders that cannot be detected by other examinations, examination using MRI can produce results, even though the results of CT scans and X-rays are normal. Another case if the opposite is true, namely an MRI examination has been carried out. If so, there is no point in doing a CT scan especially X-ray, because the level of accuracy is lower.
Our advice, if you have doubts or object to doing an MRI examination for one reason or another, you have the right to ask a second opinion from another doctor, especially a neurologist from another hospital. Of course with the consequences if in the end they both have the same decision, which is to do an MRI examination, you have to obey it because it means the only way. So, hopefully answering your question.
