I seriously have no more trust in radiologists...



  • Ah ha my little story is releated to viewing images,but not images of the spine.My PCP wanted a view of my liver,ok no problem.The results came back (from an ultrasound) that my liver was a bit large but the real problem was a mass on my pancreaous.I went to the pancreaous doctor and they did a procedure called an "EUS" (they can send a camera and some tools down your throat.The guy came back with a diagnosis of chronic pancreatitis and a chain of pusedo-cysts.This is not as bad as it can get but it was not good either.Accidentaly the pancreaous doctor scheduled me for a follow up lookover by a CT machine that was suppose to be done in 1 year but got done in one month.The guy running the CT explained how this machine was state of the art for problems like mine and they would know for sure what was going on. It turned out the CT film reader said I had a much more serious tumor called an IPMN tumor.My point is that even when radiologists get involved their diagnosis can differ widely.My back suregon does seem to value the CT shots,(and the radioligist reading of)espically when they are right before surgery.
