    im goin to agree with catscanman here. CT is definetly not the poor mans MRI by all means. Both are wonderful modalities and they both have their ups and downs. I am clearly non biased as well. Im registered in xray/ct/mri/nuclear medicine.

    Just curious, having dizzy spells more like vertigo. Which is the better test to go thru CT or MRI to see what might be causing it?
