Best type of scan for a fistula and gastic hernia?

Recommended Posts


Well, I know I have a hernia in my upper abdomen area. My gastric surgeon says it could be at ring (called it something and for the life of me cannot remember where he is very certain it is).

He also suspects a fistula due to other symptoms I am having.

He ordered a CT scan for both. I read something just now online about someone getting a MRI to find a fistula.

So, can a CT find a fistula? Or should I call my surgeons office and request a MRI instead?

Thank you all so much :o
