As luck, or misfortune, would have it I took a spill yesterday afternoon and landed hard on my bottom. I ended up in the ER with significant lower back pain. Fortunately, I’m doing better today. While at the ER given my history they performed a CT scan. I confirmed with the tech that the scanner was a 64 slice scanner and the protocol was 1 mm cuts like you prefer. So, I’ll run by the post office on Tuesday and send the CD to your office attention Lori. Now you’ll have 2 CT studies for comparison along with a fresh MRI and a flexion/extension X-ray.
Great to hear that you recovered from your spill. Another CT scan can only help.
