I posted a question a short while ago about MRIs for Optic Neuritis. I was due to have a contrast MRI of the head and orbits on Wednesday; well I was due for a normal one and a contrast one. My opthalmologist specifically requested the contrast one saying the normal didn't show up what was needed and he needed more detail. He went into great detail in my appointment with him why I needed a contrast MRI. But when I went on Wed, the radiologist did the normal MRI and then her technician told me I could go. I queried the contrast, but as I was talking the technician just ushered me out of the room saying the radiologist didn't want to do it, and wouldn't answer any of my questions. I was just told "you go now" and he started with another patient as I was still talking to him. I wasn't making a fuss, just asking why, as my op was so insistent. I went and spoke to my op's secretary and she checked my paperwork and said, yes, I needed a contrast.
So now I'm scared. Could anyone here think of a reason why the radiologist may have refused. I'm not allergic to shellfish, or anything like that... the only thing I can think of is that within 6 weeks between the two MRIs, something which wasn't obvious before is now very obvious. And I've got no-one in real life to talk to about this :-(
I hope it's ok to post??
