» An MRI has been ordered, what happens now?
MRI requests are submitted by our office.
There are several medical services plan (MSP) funded locations in Vancouver where our office submits requisitions. We make an effort to send it to the hospital that is providing the shortest wait time, however wait times have been unpredictable and some patients have waited up to 8 months for an appointment. The hospital typically calls each patient directly to advise him/her of their appointment time. Please call our office at (604) 905-4075 as soon as you have been assigned a time so that a follow-up consultation to the imaging results can be arranged.
Private, WorkSafeBC, RMCP and non-MSP insurance patients can have their MRI’s arranged in Whistler (extremity examinations) or Vancouver. Please call our office for details. A fee may be charged by the facility performing the MRI. Some MR machines have limited quality and our office can advise on the appropriate quality.
