Hi Justin - Thanks for your article. BUT - when I had to have a second scan two months after a regularly-scheduled scan, I alleviated my scanxiety by going into the radiology office with a great deal of (false - ???) confidence and bravado and said "I had a scan done yesterday. Would you check if there's a report, please? I'd like a copy." I showed my idea and within seconds a printer started up in the background and the receptionist handed me a couple sheets of paper. Out to the car with trembling hands I went where I saw excellent results. I think we have a right to our own medical records. I was just too scared to sit around waiting for a doctor's office call.
