Obtaining the results

All scans are protocoled, supervised and reported by a Consultant Radiologist who will then return the report directly to the referring Clinician. This is usually all done on the same day as the scan. Should you need to see these images they can be provided on CD/ DVD format. Images obtained are also available on laser printed sheets at additional cost.
