Freeman MRI

MRI Freeman.

After a week of potential COVID, I was thinking that I may have had to cancel said MRI.

That was scheduled for 19:10 on a Saturday night! The demand ruins weekends. For good reason to be fair.

However, I received a phone call on that Saturday morning asking if I'd accept an earlier slot of 12:00. Hell yeah! Saturday night alive again.

I'm not missing the possible cancellation reason: I woke up on that day (for the 2nd time since actually falling asleep) feeling SO much better than the Friday before!

After explaining that I had been home testing with LFTs (lateral flow test) with Negative results to the caller, I was told that if I did one before going to the Freeman with a Negative result, I could safely get the scan!

To the scan.

  • In a mobile MRI unit at an unusual venue, I was a tad anxious; that anxiety proved of no worth thankfully.
  • I found where to go, checked in at the reception and was taken to the scanner.
  • Up some stairs with handrails, thankfully.
  • What I did NOT see were little steps going into the main 'room' front door and then the main scanner area! 
  • Thankfully I didn't fall.

Nor was I warned about them though. Yellow card.

The rest was simply an MRI of the head (maybe my 20th scan in 16 years), and with awareness of the aforementioned steps to be careful about on exit!

So that was a 1st Saturday MRI* (I think) having had a couple on a Sunday before!

What a scanning journey I live!

*Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a type of scan that uses strong magnetic fields and radio waves to produce detailed images of the inside of the body.

An MRI scanner is a large tube that contains powerful magnets. You lie inside the tube during the scan.
