My 2 cervical MRI reports say I have a 9-mm lesion at T2 and recommends a CT scan to study it. However, my thoracic MRI report doesn't even mention the existence of this lesion.
My neurosurgeon is following the recommendation and wants to have a CT scan done to take a closer look. But I've already have two CT before and am concerned of the negative effect of radiation.
A different doctor says MRI is good enough, or actually better than CT, to study the lesion. The CT is not necessary and is more a tool for the hospital to generate revenue.. Since he isn't the treating physician, I cannot ask him to do anything about it. Is there a way for me to ask a radiologist to look at all my three MRI images and determine whether the lesion is at a safe location?
