Had MRI today at Cannock. As I had done my research and listed to advice on this site I asked some questions when I got there. I asked the radiologist what exactly had the neuro requested on the sheet - they didn’t know because they couldn’t read his writing. So I asked if they could do the MRI with MS protocol and 3mm slices - they said they look for MS anyway, whatever that means. I then asked what is the Teslar rating of the machine, at which point they asked me if I was a radiologist. It was only a one teslar so even though I don’t hold out much hope of a diagnosis after this my hope faded even more. She tried to reassure me that it was a great machine that produced really clear pictures.
Anyway when all was done I asked for a copy of the report. Apparently I can have one for £50 - this is all on the NHS. Has anyone else asked for a copy of their MRI report and been charged? Seems extortinate to me!
