    Hi Ian,

    I am Sorry but i cannot answer your Question because I 

    am not up on MRI scans ive only ever had one so i just 

    dont know the answer to your Question you would need 

    to ask the People about their scans ect.

    Or speak to whoever reffered you for one.

    I found out yesterday i dont have COPD it is Asthma

    going bk to docs tomorrow.

    Wow...that is fast....but maybe they got great clear pics and that's all they needed. The techs just scan what the Dr orders so  you could call his office and ask his nurse or him. Maybe it's a great new MRI machine that's fast. Either way...let us know ian48077
