Reading diagnostic tests

AnonymousUserAAnonymousUser Posts: 49,578
I'm having a CT/Myelogram done next week, and I'm wondering... When my doctor gets the report, is it only as good as the person who reads it? Or is the report pretty accurate? My regular family doctor ordered this test, since the 2nd opinion doctor I saw didn't think it was necesssary. Of course, I insisted, since I'm still in pain and the last MRI showed minimal scarring.

    MRI and other diagnostic readings may have different interpretations depending on who is reading it.
    There are some general rules to follow when reviewing these tests, but as with anything, different eyes may see different things. Its always wise to get more than one opinion for the review of these tests.

  • Thank you both for letting me know that. I will make sure I have a few people read my tests.
