no idea. just got an appointment through from radio9logy. she has a growth/tag on her ear since, well before she was born really. apparently the tags can also indicate problems with the kidneys and bladder.
DS was requested to be on the ward for 8.30am today and I had a pile of info about the scan sent to me with the appointment letter - I'm sure you'd know if she was having the DMSA scan. Does it say ultrasound on the letter?
No Misdee. I'd have thought it would just be the sort of scan you have when pregnant initially. As long as she dosen't have an xray where she has to have a kind of dye injected there will be no risk like that.
I'm sure it will just be an ultrasound - they do that first, as it's non-invasive. DS loved it - he got to watch telly while people said he was a good boy The telly was his kidneys and bladder on the screen, which was a bit odd though!
