    Hello All
    I have a question related to a recent MRI that I got done(Not in the US but ohter country). The place I got my MRI done was kinda busy and the receptionist was new so she was totally confused as to what to do with the patients. By mistake, she wrote my sex as Female instead of Male. MRI went well, reports came back normal. My question is does it make any difference even if the doctor reviewed by report as a Female Patient report?? What i mean to ask is, is there any thing that will be diffrent on a male and female MRI???? It was just a routine checkup.

    I'm sorry, but I gotta laugh at this one . . .

    What body part were you having examined?
    I may be little rusty on general gross anatomy, but I think there may be few minor differences in the pelvic region . . .

    :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    Brain/spine shouldn't matter much, although I guess there are some minor male/female differences in overall brain or pituitary volume. Probably nothing anyone would notice unless they were looking for it, though . . .

    I'm going to laugh again, OK?
