Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is another modern diagnostic imaging technique that produces cross-sectional images of the body. Unlike CT scans, MRI works without radiation. The MRI tool uses magnetic fields and a sophisticated computer to take high-resolution pictures of your bones and soft tissues. Tell your doctor if you have implants, metal clips, or other metal objects in your body before you undergo an MRI scan.
I lied as motionless as possible on a table that slides into the tube-shaped MRI scanner. The MRI creates a magnetic field around and then pulses radio waves to the area of my body to be pictured. The radio waves cause tissues to resonate.
A computer records the rate at which my body’s various parts (tendons, ligaments, nerves, etc.) give off these vibrations, and translates the data into a detailed, two-dimensional picture. I didn’t feel any pain while undergoing an MRI, but the machine was very noisy.
An MRI may help my doctor to diagnose torn knee ligaments and cartilage, torn rotator cuffs, herniated disks, hip and pelvic problems, and other problems. The MRI took about 40 minutes.
After MRI I went to the gynecology division because I was told for an examination because I had cramps on my left leg since saturday the 20th of June. A doctor checked me and ordered an ultra sound examination of my leg because he suspected a blood cloth. I had to wait for that time schedule from 10:00 AM to 2:40 PM. I got lunch at the hospital.
The ultra sound doctor found a blood cloth on my left leg as my doctor suspected. Then I had to go back to the emergency ward for treatment. I got even more medicine among others, something I had to inject myself. Oh my God! I can’t do it! I guess I have to ask a nurse to do it for me.
