MRI scans don't expose you to radiation.
why are you questioning what the first radiologist reported?
do you have your MRI scan reports?
was your MRI scan an open MRI or close? what part of the body? was it with contrast?
I am on levothyroxine and I am not worried about bone thinning.
are you a man or woman?
how old are you?
levothyroxine is a thyroid hormone
what is your TSH or thyroid stimulation hormone level? this can tell if your thyroid hormone levels are correct for you.
have you been treated with steroid therapy for your ankylosing spondylitis? steroid therapy can definitely cause osteopenia.
was the MRI scan of your cervical and thoracic and lumbar spine?
what did the report say?
you are welcome
