Hi, I'm a newbie here and I've a question my consultant wasn't able to answer to my satisfaction and I wondered if anyone here had an answer. I was diagnosed with gallstones and gallbladder infection at the start of the year and I've just had an MRI to check my bile ducts. I've got to have an ERCP and I've been marked as urgent. When looking at the MRI, I wanted to know what all the white areas were, which seemed to be roughly where the top of my large intestine should be (as far as I could tell). I expected to be told it was food, or liquid passing through. But all he repeated was that it was the dye showing that I'd been given. No matter how often I said I hadn't had any, didn't seem to faze him. I know not everyone is given dye and I'm certainly not senile, I didn't have anything given me in any form whatsoever. Could MRI images be mixed up between patients? Could it be simple food or water passing through and my Consultant be a poor judge of reading images? I've had a few examples of poor/lax care so far with this illness and this just seems to take the biscuit. Has anyone any ideas?
