  • No one is qualified to go over or provide you with any information on your MRI report. That needs to come from your treating physician.

    Post edited by Sandi- It is a violation of Spine-Health's forum rules to ask for, and to provide analysis, or interpretation of medical tests.
    You agree not to ask for any analysis or interpretation of diagnostic tests (ie MRI, CTScans, EMG, etc.),
    You agree not to respond to any request for analysis of diagnostic tests (ie MRI, CTScans, EMG, etc.)


  • Well it's called the NHS....
  • Your primary or whatever doctor ordered the MRI report will go over the results with you when you see them for follow up once they have the report.

    After moving from England to the USA I have a newfound appreciation of the NHS. Every country criticizes its health system. I know of a lot of people who can't afford insurance & a lot more who can't afford their care WITH insurance. They would love the NHS!!
    I would advise anyone, anywhere to get a copy of their MRI & summary & have it explained, in detail by their doc. Keep hold of your copy...it can avoid frustrations down the road! I know it's incredibly frustrating waiting when you're in pain but an MRI is just a snap shot. You need to be examined & discuss your pain to get a correct diagnosis & 'action plan' of treatments, therapy etc. to get you back on your feet.
