Medical imaging has significantly increased over the past 10 years – and radiation exposure along with it. This is especially true with CT scans (Computed Tomography). There is also significant overuse of scans, and this also adds to the added unnecessary radiation exposure.
Getting a second opinion on a scan – or having it re-read – can sometimes help avoid an unnecessary test. It is possible that the original recommendation was too aggressive or advised a followup regimen that isn’t warranted. Sometimes radiologists recommend additional scans when they aren’t needed. Having someone take a second look can’t hurt – and it may actually help reduce harmful radiation exposure.
