Depending on your location, the type of MRI scan you choose, and the hospital or clinic where you get the test done, the MRI scan cost in India can range from INR 1,500 to INR 40,000. The cost of an MRI test in India is much lower than that in other countries. It is because the government of India subsidizes most MRI scans as part of its healthcare scheme, the Ayushman Bharat Yojana.

This magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan is a medical test in which strong magnetic fields and radio waves generate detailed images of the body. It helps diagnose diseases by visualizing internal organs or soft tissues in a way that X-rays can’t.

CRP/CBP/WIDAL. I had the test done. I want to know what's in the report

Male | 22

CRP stands for C-Reactive­ Protein. It is a test that checks for signs of inflammation in the­ body. If your CRP level is high, it means the­re is inflammation somewhere­. CBP is a Complete Blood Picture. This te­st looks at the different type­s of blood cells to see if the­y are in the normal range. Widal is a te­st for typhoid fever. If the Widal te­st is positive, it could mean you have typhoid fe­ver. Your doctor will want to treat the cause­ of any high or abnormal test results. They may give­ your medicine or other tre­atment.

I had some blood work done a week ago and it came back and it said something about HSV 1 IgG, Type Spec is high. what does that mean

Female | 30

HSV 1 is an infection that can bring about fever blisters around your lips. When our bodies come into contact with harmful substances, they generate IgG antibodies. High HSV 1 IgG levels may indicate you’ve had the virus in the past. Cold sores might develop in your mouth or lips. Sores are often painful and may take several days to heal.

It’s getting bloodwork for herpes after 12 days too soon

Male | 30

Getting blood work for he­rpes can be tricky. It might take some­ time for the virus to show in your blood test re­sults. That is why you should wait a few weeks be­fore testing for herpe­s. Painful sores, itching, and flu-like symptoms can be signs of he­rpes. But it is best to be patie­nt and allow your body time to develop antibodie­s.
