The figures provided above are for patients who received an MRI Scan during a spell in hospital. To provide further detail would require a manual trawl through paper records. This would constitute a disproportionate effort to retrieve and would exceed 18 hours. This information is therefore exempt on the grounds of cost (Section 12(1)).
