Eventually arrived at Ayr hospital for my Mri scan after having to literally run from Ayr bus station to train station to catch connecting bus 357, bus times are terrible. I decided to walk into Ayr after my scan as I would have waited 2 hours for a return bus the walk took 30 mins and it was nice day so no problem for me but I dread to think how someone with mobility issues would cope with this situation.
The scan itself was pretty much wham bam thank you ma'am,
Straight forward questions ( repeated three times) and into scanner trainers and all only thing I had to remove was my belt.
A tight fit actually and I'm slim but my elbow still dragged on wall inside scanner,
No interaction while I was scanned at all
Which I didn't mind personally.
From xray dept I was led around maze corridors to mobile scanning unit, low n behold, yards from main entrance I couldve simply walked straight up to it but had to register at xray dept some distance away.
One niggle at no point was I checked to see if I had any magnetic metals in my pockets,
If I'd forgotten a pocket and left a key in it or something only way I and staff wouldve known was when it flee through the air causing injury or damage staff should check.
I think patients can't be trusted to remember everything and might be stressed or forgetful.
Even though I'd checked my pockets a few times as scanner started I wondered if I'd missed anything but after few mins I realised I hadn't as nothing was flying about.
Overall a painless relaxing experience took about 40mins would've been more convenient if I could've had scan at Crosshouse hospital if ive to go there again for scan I'd cancel travel is nightmare.
