This poll was conducted in the Mold Avoiders Facebook group in November 2017.

The goal was to look at the reported health effects of MRI testing.

The question read:

If you have had an MRI, please mark ALL the choices that apply to you. For instance, if you have had more than one MRI, and one didn’t seem to have negative effects and the other did, then you should mark both of those options on the poll. This poll is about MRI experiences that you have had since starting to get sick only. If you had an MRI before you started to get sick, please exclude that experience for the sake of this poll. 

 

A total of 63 individuals responded.

Of these, 39 said that they had had MRI’s with contrast and 45 said that they had had MRI’s without contrast.

Following are the breakdowns.
