It’s been almost a year now and I still haven’t received my MRI results.

You are not going to get the results, they go to the doctor ordering the MRI, talk to them, they have had the results for about a year.

It's nearly 5 years since I was last able to see a GP in person.

I see my GP within a day or two of requesting, telephone - same day, test results two to three days.

 

I'm quite happy with my health care, outside the fact that I have to travel out of province to get surgery in a timely fashion.

Well I went to the health gateway, it shows I went for imaging and who did it, but there were no results provided.

Calcium pyrophosphate for the win... maybe?

Getting old sure is interesting.  I noticed on the report it said age 48, how can that be.

Time is like a roll of toilet paper…the closer you get to the end… the faster it goes.

Should You Get a Full-Body MRI?
“..Full-body MRIs have been in the spotlight recently – with celebrities and influencers using the tool to get a comprehensive picture of their health. For a high price, these all-encompassing MRIs will scan the body from head to toe and have the ability to detect various abnormalities that may be lurking inside you…”: https://health.usnew...a-full-body-mri




I got sent to the hospital imaging department(covered by msp) only got a small part scanned, checking out the price list for the rest at a private facility locally: https://www.westcoas...43dab8bc3ff.pdf

Apparently some buzz today:


Plan for private MRI clinic at Hillside scrapped after failed appeals

“..brand-new MRI machine was removed from her Victoria clinic to be shipped back to the United States last week…”

“..said she was up against an NDP government that opposes private clinics, and various regulatory bodies saying different things. There was a lack of regulations or guidelines for private operators, and the obligation to prepare her facility for inspection without any promise of accreditation...”

“..all pointing their fingers at each other…”

“..West Coast Medical Imaging in Uptown, which provided publicly funded diagnostic imaging such as X-rays, mammograms and ultrasounds, had been offering private-pay options for MRIs until it received a warning last October from the Medical Services Commission to stop private pay for medically necessary MRIs because it was in contravention of the Medicare Protection Act…”: https://www.timescol...appeals-9069562




Maybe they don’t want to treat the results.. if somebody wants to pay for a photo of their body.
