Another MRI …

MRI
The research study that I volunteered for required a full-body MRI. Instead of injecting me with a contrast dye, the technician encased my chest in a rigid plastic vest and my head in a two-piece vinyl helmet. After handing me a couple earplugs ( no music this time) the adventure began! Within 15 minutes I had an itch on my nose. By 30 minutes I had to pee … badly. It was a long hour. Towards the end of the scan I started recognizing the different sequences of the equipment by the noises it made.

A Research Study

My oncologist, Dr. Stewart, encouraged me to enroll in a research study to learn how to improve MRIs ( Magnetic Resonance Imaging ) for the detection of metastatic cancer without using an injected contrast dye. The study is funded by the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF).
