Sharing some information on MRI equipment

Posted by Darlene on 8/14/04 at 16:03 (157873)

I would like to share what I have learned regarding MRI's. I had one MRI at a private clinic in Buffalo (which showed that everything was just fine), and then another MRI at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. It showed an enlarged accessory muscle in my tarsal tunnel which is consistent with my symptoms. The MRI in New York was a 3 tesla strength. I don't think there are many of them around. I know the local one is 1.5 tesla and they consider that to be good. Could it be that many people are misdiagnosed due to less than ideal equipment?

Thanks. It sounds like the Mayo Clinic would be a good place to go too.
