  • MRI vs. Diagnostic Ultrasound?

    Posted by katiebarns on April 30, 2018 at 7:11 pm

    I’m trying to get some imagining done to see what is causing my pain. I was thinking of getting a MRI but have also heard of dynamic ultrasounds. Would one be better than the other to get at first? I just want to make sure I get the right imaging.

    [USER=”935″]drtowfigh[/USER] Dr. Towfigh, do you recommend one more than the other first?

    When I saw a surgeon the one thing they said about ultrasounds is your at the mercy of the technician. Some are good some are bad. If you get a bad one they probably miss it. I had a ct scan done the radiologist and surgeon could not agree on the scan. Surgeon said he saw a break in the wall radiologist said he was not convinced there was a break in the wall. I later had a ultrasound done and we tried every position possible to try and find the hernia. She seemed knowledgeable but I have no way to know.
