garyolly Posted August 17, 2010 Share Posted August 17, 2010 (edited) This might sound a bit pedantic but recently several posts have been a bit confusing to me.:confused: When somebody mentions an angio, are they meaning a CTa or a Formal Angio? Some posts have even crossed between an angio and then mentioned not liking the noise an MRI makes. My take on these scans are: CT= light scan of head/neck, no dye. CTangio= light scan of head / neck with dye. Formal Angio= Scan of head /neck via groin or neck, with or without dye MRI= scan of head / neck / body using magnetic pulses (the noisey one) Is this right???:confused: It might sound odd but it gets confusing when reading or answering a post, OR is it just me being a duffer.????:lol: Edited August 17, 2010 by garyolly Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
