- YOUR SECOND OPINION REPORT MAY BE COVER by OHIP
- NO PHYSICIAN REFERRAL REQUIRED
Second opinions in radiology are a vital component in helping to synthesize a correct and accurate diagnosis which can direct patient care and treatment appropriately, detect a fracture or cancer which was missed or inaccurately diagnosed, or in some instances prevent needless further testing or treatment.
Each year, millions of imaging studies are performed on patients however, at times, critical and important findings are missed, incorrect recommendations are made, or the interpretation of the imaging findings are inaccurate. The patient and physician may be confused by the final interpretation and possibly even misled.
A recent study by the John's Hopkins Neuroradiology Department indicated that there was a 7.7% rate of discrepant interpretations on second opinion consultations which were clinically significant. The majority of the errors found were in detecting abnormalities. They concluded that "review of outside studies benefits patient care."
Our mission at 2nd Radiology Opinion is to provide detailed reports on CT and MRI scans by our subspecialty radiologists. Our aim is to put your mind at ease by taking the time to listen to your symptoms and provide a comprehensive report tailored to answer the clinical question.
We can also provide the patient and/or doctor with a personal consultation so there are no lapses in communication or questions unanswered. We seek to understand the patient and provide an expert opinion that can direct treatment appropriately.
