    They get analysed thoroughly after you have your scan so you will probably have to wait if it was anything serious. Though to be fair, like you said, it is highly unlikely and your anxiety making you think of worst case scenario. I used to do this a lot so know what you're going through, hang in there. If the Dr says there will probably be nothing then try and think like that. Also, a week isn't as long as it seems. I have just waited 12 weeks and a day (85 days) between physio appointment after my MRI scan. Now that was a wait.

    MRI scans r written out by the MRI radiology dept. the result is then sent to UR doc for him to read ang interpet the scan to u. If anything serious is found its hospital policy to contact the patient immediately.

    so in most cases no news is good news..
