In June I had an MRI & MRA due to hearing my heartbeat in my ear. It turned out to be nothing and cleared up , it was chalked up to my bad sinuses and my ear being clogged.
However the scan showed a possible aneurysm so I was referred to a vascular neurologist. He reviewed the scan and told me it was a infundibulum. As he looked at the rest of the scan he pointed out two little knots and wanted to play it safe so he sent me for a CTA. Well I get the call that they are indeed two very small aneurysms to small to even measure. I myself looked at the radiologist report and he didn’t even pick up on this, in fact two different radiologist didn’t see them…MRA &CTA read by different doctors.
My neurologist nurse was the one who called me with the results and told me to come back in 6 months for another CTA scan to see if they’ve changed.
Well now I have many questions and was told I should just make an appointment to come talk to him and to put my mind at ease.
I decided to get a second opinion from DR. Potts at Northwestern and that is this coming Tuesday.
I’m confused as to how two different radiologist missed this, I did ask doctors nurse and she said that my doctor is an eagle eye and picks up the smallest of stuff.
I worried as I read that Acom are harder to treat and have a history of rupture at a smaller size.
