I had my MRI last night at 6.30pm, which went fine.
2 members of staff did the scan, a radiographer and an assistant. Afterwards the radiographer was chatty, asked who referred me and if i had a follow up appointment planned. I didn't think anything of it. Then i went to get my bag, she said she'd be back and went off for a couple of minutes. She came back and said i could go. Again didn't think anything of it. I saw the assistant talking to who i think was a dr/consultant. They stopped talking as i walked through the door and smiled. Obviously when they thought i was out of ear shot the assistant said 'she had a lumber MRI 2 years ago but has never had a brain MRI'. which is fitting for my medical history. I didn't say anything and went home. Obviously I've been worrying since about if they we're talking about my MRI why. I know there was only 2 scans going on at the time, mine and a male who said he was there for a hip MRI.
I called my neurologist secretary this morning and said what I'd herd and that I'm worried about them talking to a consultant straight after my MRI. She was fab and said they'd call me sometime today if it was an emergency (thankfully not heard anything). She said i shouldn't have been put in a position to overhear a conversation like that and as the medical history was mine or one very similar to mine she's emailed the MRI department explaining what happened and to request they do the report urgently. I have to call her back on Friday, she'll check the report is back and then ask the neurologist to look at it.
Has anyone experience anything like this before? Or your MRI being looked at straight away?
