In brief: It depends.....
If you got the MRI through the emergency room you should get the results back that day.
Otherwise, if the MRI is "routine" done as an outpatient it can vary from same day up to 2 days. Then your provider has to read the results and put those together with your clinical picture and call you with his/her final impressions.
