Varies: In general, the physician who sent you for the test will get the results in 24-72 hours. You can request the report from the radiology facility. I recommend you contact the physician who sent you for the test to get the results.

Don't wait!: Be a squeaky wheel. The next day, call your doctor or ask to speak to the radiologist. In my practice the studies are usually read the same day and then the referring physician can access the report immediately . This may not be true for the radiology group which has performed your study, but you can probably move your study to the top of the queue just by asking.
