What to Expect after an MRI

  • Once your scan is complete, the technologist will send the images to the radiologist who will generate a report for the ordering doctor.
  • It may take 24-48 hours for the report to be sent to the ordering provider.
  • Results of the test will be reviewed with you at your next follow up appointment.
  • If you wish to obtain a copy of your images for your own records, you may do so by requesting a CD from the receptionist on your way out.
  • There will be a $5.00 fee to have your images burned to a disc.
  • The radiologist's report can be obtained through the medical records department.
  • If you are referred to our facility for an MRI from a provider outside of SOS, make sure to ask for a CD of the MRI images to bring back to your doctor.
