I had my MRI today (brain and neck), about 30 minutes into the scan the radiographer brought me out and said..'The scanners playing up, it may be broken' and preceeded to put me back in. Well you can imagine how I felt..I hate these things to start with but there I was for 10 minutes nothing happening, thinking I was stuck in there.. he brought me out again and said 'we need to switch off and start it up again'..so off to the waiting room in my gown sat with 2 blokes , If it wasn't so frustrating it could have been funny... so back in again for another 10 minutes and done... I thought going on a Sunday might be less stressful..that'll teach me .
I asked for a copy of the report and was told that I had to request it from the consultant who ordered the scan, and that I wouldn't be able to have a copy until he had talked it through with me, is this right? Also, is it possible to request copies of radiographer reports for a scan done ~ 4 years ago?
Enjoy the rest of your weekend..
