Hi,
How are you? I agree with you that the waiting part is the hardest time but this does not necessarily suggests bad news.  Results may indeed be forwarded to the requesting physician or consultant and may not be available for the patient. And with regards to the consultant's availability, there are many possible reasons for this. Sometimes also, the readings of the scan may be referred or discussed by several radiologists before an official reading is made. Take care and hope all is well. Do keep us posted about the scan results.
