I don't think I was condemning psychiatry; I didn't intend to, as haphazard as some of my treatment may be. I'm concerned about actually being requested for a head scan. I mean, I'm glad someone is going to do at least a cursory look considering the strange symptoms I've had, some related to speech fluency.

I am inferring from your post that a CT scan is not preferred. Is this correct? I only know about MRI. Not the others.



Worried again.....

> Much of modern medicine is still an art for lack of complete understanding or available tools. Lots of cardiologists never view the heart muscle with their own eyes once they enter clinical practice. This makes them no less adept at testing and imaging the heart as they treat it exclusively with drugs. Clinical psychiatrist are trying to keep up with the explosion of information being produced by neuroscientists and investigative biological psychiatrists. Thousands of brains have been examined post mortem. PET, MRI, SPECT, and other imaging techniques can resolve what the unaided eye cannot see. With these facts in mind, I don't believe it is valid to condemn psychiatry as being any less of a science than is cardiology. It is just that neuroscience must deal with an organ (the brain) that is perhaps the most complex structure in the Universe.
