    Well, surprisingly my insurance company denied the CT scan in favor of a MRI even though I had a MRI in early June. So my CT scan is from early May, but I don’t know if it was on a 64 slice scanner with 1 mm cuts but it will have to do. I presume the MRI is best as my primary issue is leg pain. MRI with contrast scheduled for next Friday.

    Just confirmed with the hospital where my CT scan from May was done that it was unfortunately on a 16 slice scanner with 1.25 mm cuts. Hopefully that will still give you good enough info on my fusion mass at L5-S1. I’ll submit the request on your website for surgical second opinion after my MRI next Friday.
