MIBG & Iodine Allergy

This is an explanation of the scan I’m going for today. From an MIBG pro ❤

Pheo vs Fabulous

You can kind of call me a pro scanner by now, I’ve only done like a thousand. (Okay, maybe not 1000, but A LOT)

My insides like taking pictures just as much as my outside.

    • lol This is actually my bestie Miranda, who also has Pheochromocytomas and happened to be doing her MIBG scan today also. She is much more photogenic than I am lol 😉
