MRA Scan!!!!!!!!

Joseph has an appointment on Tuesday morning for an MRA scan for his narrow airway. Sad

He has to fast 3 hours before the procedure in case they have to sedate him. I really don't know how he is going to cope with the noise and going into the 'tummel' Sad

You can have open scans where there is no tunnel and the noise is far less as well

Best of luck to you and Joseph. Flower

Is an MRA like a MRI?

Hope everything goes well and it doesn't upset him too much Hug

Yes but is looks more closely at blood vessels

Samuel I know you can get open scans now but Aberdeen sick children's hospitla don't have that scanner, it is a tunnel one they have,

I had to phone and cancel the appointment as Joseph is full of the cold. It was only when I phoned that I was told he was having a general and not being sedated like I thought. Got to wait for another appointment now.
