I'm heading over to the cardio clinic in 90 minutes, for nuclear imaging of my ticker before & after time on a treadmill. The cardiologist tells me the radioactive dye which they'll put in me is the equivalent of a chest x-ray.
But I had multiple x-rays done 3 weeks ago, after the accident. Why do I need more radiation, again?
Scientists/enviroweenies/talking heads are always 'splaining how radiation is harmful ... so why then are medical folks in such a huge hurry to introduce large doses of the stuff?
I'm kidding. I think.
Update: It was - of course - no big deal. I'll get the results sometime in the coming week, at which point we'll know whether I need a) more stents, b) bypass surgery, or c) nothing.
I'm guessing you know which option I'm rooting for. :^)
