If we have a scan of the referral on file, we can do the examination without the original. However, the original request must be subsequently submitted, without it we cannot send the result of the examination to the doctor who issued the referral. The original referral can be delivered in person or sent by post to our address.

We can send you the report by e-mail in a password-protected file. If you are interested in receiving the report from your examination, please inform the staff of the MRI reception in advance, ideally before the examination itself.
How do I obtain the password to open the file?
You will choose a password for any future phone and e-mail communication in the informed consent, which you fill in just before the examination.
