Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
This is Dr. David
chest xray reports are quit and most radiologist can read them within one day of imaging.
I am not sure why you have to wait one week for results.
the radiologist will usually cause the referring doctor if there is a spot on the xray right away to let the doctors know.
if the xray is normal, then usually it is just written on the report.
i was referred by my gp for chest x ray so have to wait up to ten days for result but spoke to radioligists who say if they see anything that seems urgent they contact doctor before the ten days
yes, I agree
ok thank you for that just wanted a bit of reassurance thats all a bit worried you are based in uk arent you
