Stacy, you will need to have your father or his power of attorney if he has one go to the place he had his MRI done. Request 1. A DVD or CD of the MRI films and 2. the radiology report.
If the clinic is wondering why it is needed, simply state it is needed for a comparison at another clinic. Since the MRI was done 5 years ago they may not be able to provide a disc. If they are unable to provide a disc or films then just get the radiology report but try to get the films. The information you are looking for should be there. If the radiology report does not state anything that answers your question you can have another neurlogist review the films/CD.
