color doppler vs MRI/s

    Default color doppler vs MRI/s

    Again, I'm not trying to be my own doctor, just wondering about imaging
    technology. I looked up color doppler yesterday, and it seemed to be an
    excellent diagnostic tool.

    What would an MRI, or MRIS, give you that a color doppler doesn't?

    Is the color doppler only helpful where they can stick a probe in?

    I finally contacted a live person at Dr. Carroll's office, faxed my info
    in for the second time, and I seem to be in the system now.

    And I'm suddenly remember the Moody Blues lyrics "and now to suit our
    great computer, you're magnetic ink".

    As to being your own doctor, why not? I take information from this NG and
    personal research to my doctors all the time. I am almost never caught off
    guard (any more) and I have deep discussions with my docs not unlike they
    would have with other docs. Indeed, my internist has recommended my son
    talk to me about prostate cancer testing and prevention because "he knows as
    much or more about it than I do." While that's a bit of an exaggeration,
    everything you learn before you see the doc helps you and he better diagnose
    and treat your disease.

    Dwight,

    There's an article in Medscape about endorectal MRI as
    a finder of extracapsular extensions, and a useful
    predictor of future metastases. See:

    http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/...1946&src=nldne

    I had an endorectal MRI. It found an extracapsular
    extension, but it didn't extend far and the radiation
    oncologists treated it. MRI also showed no cancer
    in the lymph nodes or seminal vesicles, at least none
    big enough to see. And here I am four years later,
    still dumb and happy.
