Q: I have an order for a CT of the head, but I have heard that MRIs are better. What is the difference?
A: Your physician evaluates the imaging options based on your symptoms to determine the appropriate test for you. The MRI scan of the head is superior to the CT scan of the head, except in cases of trauma to the head or suspected bleeding in the head.

If you are planning on taking a trip for spring break this year, we wanted to give you a couple of reminders on how to protect your skin from the sunlight.
➡ Wear a hat with a wide brim all around that shades your face, neck, and ears. Baseball caps and some sun visors protect only parts of your skin.
➡ Use sunscreen products with an SPF of at least 15. Some doctors suggest using a product with an SPF of at least 30. Apply the product’s recommended amount to uncovered skin 30 minutes before going outside, and apply again every two hours or after swimming or sweating.
