The process of having an MRI, also known as an x-ray, is usually done at a hospital.
Your doctor will check the quality of the image, whether you are allergic to the radiation or if you are sensitive to it.
They will then measure your body’s response to the light.
You will be given a scan that shows you a series of coloured dots that are the x-rays.
This gives the doctor an idea of how your muscles react to radiation.
If you are a normal-weight person, your doctor will use a test called a magnetoencephalography (MEG) scanner to see how your brain responds to the laser light.
If your doctor suspects you have cancer, they will scan your brain and use a CT scan to look at the area of your brain where the radiation is coming from.
The MRI scan will show what part of your skull you have the most sensitive tissue, and how your body reacts to it, says Dr Chris Catt for the Australian Radiation Safety Authority (ARSA).
“You’ll be given something called an MRI of the brain.
The radiologist will also use a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner, which measures how light is bent by the atoms in your brain. “
The radiologist then will see how this tissue responds to light.”
The radiologist will also use a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner, which measures how light is bent by the atoms in your brain.
You’ll get a scan which shows the area you have sensitive tissue.
The radiologists will then compare the scan to an MRI to make sure the MRI shows exactly what you’re seeing.
If they are positive, they’ll take a blood sample to check for clotting in your blood vessels.
If the scans shows something that looks like cancer, you will get an xor scan.
A scan is then taken to look for a lesion on your body that might be causing your cancer.
If this is found, your cancer will be treated.
If it isn’t, you’ll be referred to a specialist radiologist who can look at your tumour to determine what is causing it.
Your cancer will then be treated with chemotherapy, radiotherapy and radiation.
You can usually get a CT or MRI scan from your doctor.
A CT scan is usually about 15cm (6 inches) wide, with a diameter of about 10cm (3 inches).
A MRI scan is about 20cm (66 inches).
It can take about two weeks for a CT to show up on the MRI scan.
It is usually taken after your MRI has been done, so your doctor can check your tumours before it is too late.
“They’re like two separate scans,” Dr Catt says.
“A CT scan shows what the tumour looks like.
Then you’ll have a MRI scan and they’ll give you the xor and magneto scan.”
If your scan shows you have a tumour that isn’t causing your tumor, you may be referred for a surgery to remove it.
If there’s no indication of the tumours cancer is growing in your body, the radiologist can look for tumours in your bone marrow.
You may have to undergo an MRI scan to confirm your diagnosis.
If all this sounds scary, you might want to talk to your GP.
The ARSA advises that if you do get a tumor and it isn’s growth being treated with radiation, your GP should be called.
“If the radiologists think you have radiation exposure, they can refer you to a radiologist, but you’re not going to be allowed to have radiation for a very long time,” Dr Chris says.
You might be diagnosed with cancer at a later date.
Your GP may then recommend a specialist radiation treatment, such as chemotherapy.
This can include radiation for bone marrow transplantation, a bone marrow replacement or a bone cancer treatment.
If radiation treatment doesn’t work, you could be referred by a specialist cancer specialist for more advanced treatments.
The cancer specialist will then ask the radiopath to go through the same scan you had.
The radiation specialist will also perform an MRI test to check the damage to your tummy tissue.
If that test reveals you have not had radiation for several years, your specialist may decide to seek treatment at a different hospital.
It could be a specialist oncology unit, or a specialist in internal medicine or surgery.
If a specialist unit is chosen, you and your family may be offered chemotherapy or radiation treatment.
This is called a “targeted treatment” and may involve chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
A target treatment may also include surgery.
“In general, your radiologist has a very good understanding of the patient’s condition and the tumorous tumour may be difficult to treat,” Dr David Cott says.
He recommends that if a target treatment isn’t working, your family have their own specialist radiologists who will do a CT, MRI and/or MRI scan on their own to find out what the damage is.
Your radiologist may then refer you for chemotherapy or surgery, and the treatment may continue for a number of years
