One never knows all the caveats and disclaimers to ask about up front, and hindsight often won't correct those issues without more money and certainly more time. My MRI scan location was slow getting the scans and reports to the neurologist, and did not tell me until I asked about the other reports, that they were free. When I called, I said, "This is like trying to get the results from the Iowa Caucus!"
This must be especially hard on you because you had to travel 5 hours round trip, and future scans have to be done at the same place/scanner according to CorTechs, in order to get accurate tracking. The reports however, are very useful and informative.
Thanks, Indywoman. I wouldn't mind paying for the reports if they were actually available. I'll try to encourage the clinic to upgrade to the latest NeuroQuant version, but I'd be shocked if I have any influence on them.
Fortunately, NeuroQuant is now available at more radiology clinics and hospitals. Unfortunately, none of them are closer to me than that clinic. Maybe the universe is telling me not to retest right now.
