are you still there?
If so please enter the chat and say hi :_)
A liver (I think you mean) MRI is undertaken for the detection and characterization of suspected primary or secondary cancers, prior to planning a surgery or chemotherapy pump placement, for assessing treatment response, for evaluating biliary pathology, and for screening for liver neoplasms in high-risk groups. As well, it is used for characterizing specific liver tumors, such as fibronodular hyperplasia, hepatic adenoma and hepatocellular cancer, depending on the type of contrast used
right, they are looking for any thing going on in the liver- it is a very detailed screening tool
There is no way for me to tell you what you have without the MRI
You may want to get a HIDA scan of the gallbladder *nuclear (*
(nuclear imaging to assess gallbladder function)
MRI is also used for "for evaluating biliary pathology"
basically it is awesome for everything
so, yes any liver damage/cirrhosis would show
ultrasound is for cirrhosis, masses, bile duct dilitation
it is less detailed than the MRI
MRI would be better for that
not as well, it can
the MRI would be better
think of a black and white TV set
and then compare it to a HDTV in color
can you see the same show? generally most of it- but the detail is sooo much better with the MRI
yes, it would show an enlarged liver
well, with those other results being normal, I think that you may have gallbladder dysfunction
and I would suggest getting the HIDA scan
Well, it sounds like you need more evaluation by a GI doctor
but did I answer your original question?
Yes, you can have gallbladder dysfunction without stones
I would suggest getting the HIDA scan- it sounds like it could be gallbladder dysfunction
yes and yes
did I provide you with excellent service
fasting may cause the gallbladder to contract less and slows movment
did I provide you with excellent service?
