Absolutely. Call their medical records office and request a written report and a copy of the disk. Usually they need 24 hours. I'm picking mine up today because the NS wants to compare the original MRI to the Flow we're doing today.
I’m currently hunting down my MRI reports for my records as well. I called the MRI department at the hospital that I got it done and they said that I could come pick up a copy of the report (they’d be able to print if off when I got there) and/or gave me the number that I could call to request it be sent to me. If you call wherever you had it done, they should be able to guide you through the process of who you need to speak with. There’s likely a CD with the images from the MRI on it a well as a printed report.
I get an email with ours from CDI each time and they have given my copies of the written report and CD’s for all of Drews doctors. It does take some time for them to copy the images and the emails come about a week after MRI. Good luck
Thanks for all the helpful information. I shall be calling asap to get a copy of my MRI and the report. I have never thought/know about always requesting a copy of medical reports/records and keeping my own copy of everything.
I do have one question about getting the medical records and reports. Is this a right of the patient to receive a copy of this? And, if so, will all doctors and medical offices be willing to give out this information?
Yes, just contact whom ever did the MRI. Most places will not charge you it is your records. They sometimes require a 24 to 48 hour period to reprint and get copy of reports. When you request them make sure you ask them for the films, disc(whatever you had done) and reports. Good luck.
I would ask for a copy on CD, a copy of the actual films and a copy of the diagnostic report. Different doctors ask for different things. Some request films specifically and some CDs specifically. The imaging center I went to has actually given me multiple copies of all 3 at no charge.
