Desy Posted August 22, 2013 Share Posted August 22, 2013 Hi guys, need to pick your brains lol Got my 6 month check up which I was told by the doctor would be an mri angiogram to check coils are doing there job. Got letter yesterday which said I had to go for an mri, no mention of the angiogram side it of, sorry it said on small print on a different page that if required they will inject dye through my arm. Would this be normal nhs practice to just say "MRI" when it will be an angiogram have any of you guys experienced this. And the next bit is, the reason that I want to know is my mum has an appoiment, wait for it, on the same day, wait for it, in the same hospital, wait for it, in the same department, wait for it, for the same scan, not yet for the same illness, ok ok I'm milking it, yes she has aneurysms, they are micro ones behind the right eye found by an optician. She has been told that they are not dangerous but they need to check the rest of her out to make sure thats all there is and I would like to drive her to the hospital but my appointment is two hours earlier and I'm thinking a scan is slightly different from the angiogram scan and I might not be able to take her. And no I'm not making it up lol thanks in advance!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
