Please proceed with your query
i have lost the prescription
there are 2 types of MRIS i am told
superficial and detailed
superficia costs 3500 and detailed 6000
i remeber showing the prescription to lab technician and he told me it will cost around 3k.
the doctor wanted to check if i have compression n C5 C6
which MRI would you recomed because i dont want to go to doctor and pay him 500 rs just to confirm?
You can go in for a plain MRI of the spinal region
you mean the superficial, cheaper one?
That which costs you 3500
Yes, that is right
ok thanks, but just curiuos any main difference?
There are basically two types of MRI
Plain and contrast enhanced
The detailed one at 6000 will take more sections and more detailed view and yes, more time consumed in the process
The detailed one will be more specific
You do not need it at this point
ok this will be central spine right?
It will be cervical spine
C5 C6 level
i mean what should i tell them? which area of back to scan?
The cervical area C5 and C6 levels
You should say the above
Thank you too
