    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.

    probably doesn't matter... what part of the body was your MRI for?

    Umm.. since when do you get a thousand dollar MRI for a 'routine check up'? :confused:

    While it may be perfectly normal to have a uterus and ovaries if you are a female, it would be highly unusual for a male patient.
