    Ok, this is the situation. A guy is in a hospital doing an examination and the doctor asks him to come on hour later for an x rays scan. Then he adds:


    Does it mean that the doctor will book this x rays scan for him? or that if he books now, it will be the same doctor to do the x rays for him?

    Thanks again!

    Welcome to the forums!

    The doctor will book an X-ray scan for the patient. Yes, you are right.

    The general expectation for booking is that he lets someone else scan the patient. This is suggested by といっても (a clause linking word for a consequence that is not immediately obvious from the condition).

    わたしがやる means the doctor himself will scan the guy.
