At 10.25, Jus pointed out that it might be an idea to ask at the desk to make sure they hadn't forgotten me.
Many apologies ensued. I finally got called for my scan at 10.45. New MRI kit this time - a 1.5 Tesla unit, 50% stronger than my last scan. Techieguy says they're hoping to get a 3T unit sometime soon. They also have some SGI kit (couldn't see what) and Stereographics goggles, just like I used to use in my research.
Music through the headphones this time. Unfortunately it was Mercia FM, our local radio station, so I had to put up with Kylie Minogue while all my hydrogen atoms were being wiggled.
So. There it is. Scan done. Now all I have to do is wait for results, let my consultants bicker over me, and then plan the next phase of getting my spine all fixed up.
I think a nap is in order.
