Every day we have to make over a hundred decisions. The most challenging ones are about health. Can you trust your doctor’s diagnosis? What should be done if physicians could not find the cause of complaints, or the administered treatment is not effective? Is it safe to agree to an operation? One can seek advice from various sources. But when time is crucial, you can not afford to waste it on drifting in murky waters of unverified information. A more sensible choice is a remote consultation of a reliable expert, that is, a medical second opinion.

Considering an alternative method of treatment and a competent specialist's opinion could be helpful in a variety of situations. When you doubt a diagnosis or treatment recommendations. If it seems that the doctor is suggesting exams that are redundant in your condition, or, on the contrary, overlooking some important tests. In the case of a rare disease which is beyond the local doctors’ expertise. Whenever the current therapy is unsuccessful, a medical error is suspected, or a choice from several procedures or drugs has to be made.

Radiology exams are very important for clinical decision making. With teleradiology, the accuracy of interpretation of such data can be improved by bringing in a third-party expert for primary or secondary evaluation.

In fact, the effectiveness of a second opinion depends not only on the technical quality, but also on the completeness of medical data provided in addition to the images.
