Ct scan w/o Dr orders?
I have an ascending aortic aneurism, size 4.9. 62yo male. (I just had a stint placed in LAD (widowmaker)
My Dr. wants to wait 6 months to recheck it.
I want to check it at 3 months, then go from there.
I recently found out my birthfather had an abdominal aortic aneurysm at 62, repaired it. He then went in yearly for a scan. He did not make it to his 10th appointment. His aorta dissected and he was gone.
Is there a place I can get a cat scan with contrast without Drs orders?
I am willing to pay cash, I know insurance won’t cover it.
Is there a danger of having a ct scans too close together.
