Dear Sir, I unfortunately have a foreign object in my neck that is radio-opaque! I have been to 8 ENT doctors and none have yet to take me seriously, they went through the steps and had various test ran with little results! All of my friends and family believe me yet I am treated by doctors as if I was being paranoid! I have never been so disappointed in the medical profession, and am sure that someday I will find a doctor that will listen to me. I feel that the biggest problem is lack of communication from Dr to radio-tech, and radio-tech to radiologist. I have reviewed all of my radio-graphs and have found things that were over looked. The object is not embedded,it would move around and I would know where it was located during each test making it easier for me to pinpoint! It appears that the object would lite-up in an area when it was against soft tissue! On an ultra-sound that I had done the radiologist read "that there was a shadowing of an object 4X4X5m". Three dimensions, a triangle! Well, if you were to take a look at the object that I have always claimed to be there and looked at it from end to end you can see and measure,and confirm that it also has a location on it that has the exact, identical dimensions! I can go into further detail if you would be interested in hearing all about it! I do not desire to waste my breath if not!
