Ya they would call you ASAP if it was something major wrong. If nothing wrong they will call you within a week.
Can I ask you why you had a CATSCAN done?

reassurance for myself recommended by my neurologist pretty much.  headaches/dizziness/tingling/ u know how people with anxiety are :P  they checked my scan there and then so i was just wondering if they would have informed me of a major problem if it was there, which i assume they would have.

When I had an MRI done the doctor called me two days after to tell me the results. You can simply call your doctor and ask him/her to call you with the results as soon as they are read, even if they do not find anything.

I had a CT last week and they told me that most radiologists look at thre results the same day and contact the doctors within 48 hours (if there is no problems-sooner if there is).  It is the doctors office that may take a while to get back to you.
