Medconsonline Features a Radiology Second Opinion

Radiology is a medical specialty which makes the inner organs, tissues, bones and vessels of living bodies visible for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes.

With the help of various technologies (X-ray, ultrasound, computed tomography, etc.) specialists obtain images of internal structures. They serve as the basis for making a diagnosis, prescribing therapies, and making other important decisions.

One might ask, what does this have to do with a second opinion? After all, the images are reproduced and processed using high-tech equipment that hardly allows for the possibility of an error.

However, the results of radiological diagnostics eventually depend on a human rather than an artificial mind. After all, mammograms or high definition scans are just "pictures". It is the job of the specialist, not the machine, to explain their content and draw conclusions from the images.   

Unfortunately, errors sometimes occur in the interpretation of the data. It could happen due to inadequate training, lack of experience in a particular disease, or insufficient knowledge of anatomy.

Since a smallest mistake may result in irreversible consequences, in case of doubts about the correctness or completeness of the radiological report, it is always worth consulting an independent expert.

Now with our service you can get a detailed and informative second opinion from a highly qualified radiologist, no matter where you are.
