The doctor very lightly applied nitrogen and had me go through an inconvenient and lengthy routine of using over-the-counter salicylic acid remedies and bandages to remove my warts. Then, he kept having me come back in for check ups at $35/visit. After $105 in copays, not one wart was removed, and one actually got much bigger. I've never had to go through such hassle before. In the past, the dermatologists have zapped it really good with nitrogen, it forms a big blister, and the wart falls off. What was the point of coming to him for this if he was just going to have me use over-the-counter remedies? I ended up having to go to my primary care physician. He zapped those warts good, blisters formed, and in one visit they were gone. Just like experiences I've had in the past. I've been to this doctor regarding my rosacea in the past and returned to him for the wart removal because he seemed to have a very good bedside manner. However, he seemed at times a bit short during this series of visits. I'm not sure what changed.
Tips & Advices
Radiological exams can be either diagnostic or interventional. Diagnostic exams are intended to detect the presence of a certain condition, like a bone fracture or a tumor inside the body. Interventional radiology uses imaging techniques to assist in treating a condition, usually through surgery, but the procedure itself is not intended to have a direct impact on the outcome of the disease.
The exact process of an exam will vary depending on the specific type of imaging procedure and the goal of the test. Patients will usually be situated near a machine that will direct the appropriate form of energy to the part of the body being examined. Technicians help patients perform the necessary steps to complete the process.
Most imaging exams do not have any immediate side effects. The most important side effect of many forms of radiology is the exposure to small doses of radiation. In almost all cases, a single exam will deliver a radiation dose that is too low to have any effect, but over repeated exposure, the risk of developing cancer from this radiation increases. Radiologists take several precautions to limit exposure on behalf of patients as well as themselves and their staff.
Results from an imaging procedure may be available almost instantly (as with X-rays and ultrasound), or might take a few minutes to develop. However, in some cases it will take a radiologist additional time to analyze and report on the images collected, so results may be delayed by a few hours or days.
Radiologists can perform a variety of imaging procedures depending on their specialty. Common examples include:
  • X-rays.
  • Computed tomography (CT scans).
  • Ultrasound.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
  • Positron emission tomography (PET).
  • Interventional radiology: Using specialized imaging techniques to assist with surgery, either immediately before or in the process of a surgical procedure.
