My DD has a ultrasound of hip/spine tomorrow
a EEG monday and a MRI tuesday but our results appt not till mid sept(1st they had)

is there something specific that they are looking for? or are these different problems.

I hate the waiting and not knowing it is driving me crazy.

im taking that been xray to check hip dislocation.

ds does this and its down to loose ligaments and hypermobile joints

pead did say she v flexible?
sits alot in a w position and actualy sleeps like it to sometimes, would that be something they look at through mri too?

was just wondering how it went today?

was told ultrasound booked by mistake as dd to old!
but had a look anyway for fluid and had xray too.

No probs with her hips.
which dont know if to be smile or sad.
if it was her hip could of been put right with carst..
guess it,s down to MRI now to pick up on something.

dont know what would peads be looking for with MRI?

any kind of anomaly...

A) scar tissue
B) malformation
C) lesions
D) underdeveloped areas

anything that would look slightly out of place.

DS5 had one done a couple of weeks ago, it took about 45mins to complete - was in the whole day for it. How old is your DD?
