MRI Diagnosis Safety Precautions

Jan 9, 2008
When undergoing an MRI dye diagnosis, you have a right to the best possible treatment from your doctor and protection from harm throughout this overall process. Despite being non-invasive, MRI has more magnification potential than X-rays and CT scans and therefore is highly recommended.

The discount price for a scan may vary according to the city and state where you are located, ranging from $380 to $560; however, patients can typically expect to pay more. For example, you could expect to pay more than $2000 if your MRI dye diagnosis were to require a basic scan of the spine's cervical and lumbar regions. Filing a lawsuit for contracting MRI dye symptoms in the overall process may allow you to be compensated for all such costs.

Should you for any reason have failed to have your health expectations met when the scan was performed, which requires being injected with MRI dye, you have a right to an MRI dye attorney. The purpose of the dye is to reveal any important details that your physician would need to see for an accurate MRI dye diagnosis.

Depending on how difficult it might have been to detect your illness, your physician may have instead needed to perform an MRA that allows your blood vessels to be seen in 3-D. Although the dye is not foreign to the human body and you likely have been told that it is safe, the diagnosis subjects you to at least a mild health risk. Side effects rarely occur and for this reason, illnesses such as nephrogenic systemic fibrosis or nephrogenic fibrosing dermopathy (NSF or NFD) are almost entirely preventable.

It is also possible that you were injured during your MRI dye diagnosis by having metallic or metallic-based objects within the scan's magnetic field. If you are claustrophobic, a sedative should have been available to take. If your physician was neglectful of either of these safety concerns in the MRI dye diagnosis, this too can be grounds for a lawsuit.

Kidney problems will give an MRI dye diagnosis a greater chance of becoming complicated. The gadolinium on which the dye is based would, under normal conditions, be cleansed from your body soon after its use. For a specific time frame to watch MRI dye symptoms following the injection, you should wait anywhere from two days to 18 months.

You are never at fault if anything should go wrong. You should seek out further medical assistance as well as contact information for a local MRI dye attorney who can show viable credentials proving that he/she specializes in this field.
