More Problems, More Scans…

By , Wednesday 2nd September 2009 in Health & Fitness

I still continue to have problems with my left ankle, despite doctors and physiotherapists not being able to find any muscular-skeletal problems. Because of these problems, an independent consultant has recommended that I have an MRI scan to determine the cause.

I've been down to the private Bupa hospital this morning to have the scan which involved me lying down with my leg in a giant polo mint for about 20 minutes. This machine uses giant magnets to detect and image various layers of tissue and bone inside my ankle and build up a model slice by slice.

This image is an example of what the MRI scan will produce, although the actual results will contain many "slices" through my ankle
