If you're booked in for an MRI scan, then you'll have been given information about how to prepare for the procedure and what to expect during the scan. This information may include instructions about not having metal objects in the scanning chamber.
Why is it important not to have anything metal in the scan? What do you need to do to prepare for this?
How MRI Scans and Metals Interact
Vascular surgeons specialise in the treatment of vascular diseases, including vascular infections, stroke, vasculitis and many more. Basically, vascular diseases occur in the arteries and veins of your body. These blood vessels are responsible for pumping blood and therefore oxygen throughout the body.
What takes place at a vascular surgeon consultation?
Vascular surgeons will first analyse their patient and decide whether using diet, exercise and medication as an initial mode of treatment is enough.
Seniors can find it especially hard to prepare for a GP appointment when they are alone and have no support. A basic preparation plan can help you maximise the value from your doctor's appointment, whether you're meeting a new one or visiting an old one. This guide equips seniors with smart tactics in preparation for a GP appointment.
Prioritise And Write Down Your Concerns
You've probably had several concerns that you wanted to discuss with your GP, only to realise that you missed out on a few important consultations until well after your appointment.
Jaw cancer is one of the more common types of diseases due to the fact that it can manifest anywhere in your mouth. Unfortunately, some people make the mistake of ignoring the signs of early onset jaw cancer because they assume that it could be an oral condition that will simply go away on its own. The longer these symptoms are ignored, the more developed the cancer becomes. This is why it is prudent to always have any sudden symptoms of oral problems be evaluated at a dental hospital.
Hepatitis B is a type of viral infection that targets the liver. The infection can cause inflammation, leading to widespread liver scarring. This can disrupt liver function. Children can get hepatitis B during or after birth. Contact with infected persons also makes them prone to the infection if they are not vaccinated.
A child may not have any symptoms after they contract hepatitis B, making it difficult for parents and doctors to catch it and treat the symptoms.
