MRI scanning now seems to be one of the main diagnostic tools. So much so that at 80 and with various recent problems I have needed two recently. The second one was rushed through last week as that consultant knew that I am having a pacemaker fitted next week.
Prior to my pacemaker assessment session today I had asked the cardiologists secretary if they were now fitting MRI compatible ones as a matter of course. The answer was no. The nurse at the assessment and the young doctor I saw were each surprised at my question and said that I will need to ask the cardiologist when I see him on the day but that compatible ones are seldom fitted.
What have recent Forum NHS patients had fitted?
