Reviews for X-rays, CT scans and MRI -
Radiology is a branch of medicine that uses imaging technology to diagnose and treat disease.
Radiology may be divided into two different areas, diagnostic radiology and interventional radiology. Doctors who specialize in radiology are called radiologists.
A radiologist is a physician who utilizes imaging methodologies to diagnose and manage patients and provide therapeutic options. A radiologist utilizes x-ray, ionizing radiation, radionuclides, ultrasound, electromagnetic radiation, and image-guided intervention to diagnose and treat disease. Physicians practicing in the field of radiology specialize in diagnostic radiology or radiation oncology.
Radiologists can receive training in the following subspecialties:
- nuclear radiology
- pediatric radiology
- vascular and interventional radiology

Second Medic is focused on reducing the Risk of Medical Errors The primary reason for a second opinion is to reduce the risk of medical errors by allowing another specialist or a team to evaluate the radiology scan. Each year, tens of thousands of patients die due to medical mistakes. Several studies have examined the value of a second opinion for radiology studies. Undoubtedly the findings always point to an increase in accurate diagnoses when the scans are reviewed by a second party.
The additional review may help detect minor or major errors from the initial diagnosis. Most radiologic errors occur due to the under-reading of the radiology exam images. Errors may also result from doctors failing to extensively examine the anatomy. Second opinions may also help reduce the risk of misdiagnosis. This prevents the chances of unnecessary medical procedures and other potential errors.
