Why Get a Body Imaging Second Opinion

Body imaging radiologists specialize in evaluating major organs and structures within the body, including the abdomen, pelvis, thorax, and thyroid, as well as the reproductive, gastrointestinal, and vascular systems. This specialization enables them to accurately detect and identify abnormalities across MRI, CT, ultrasound, and X-ray. Numerous studies have found misinterpretation rates to be the highest in body and abdominal radiology when not interpreted by a subspecialist.

“Whether it’s providing peace of mind, finding that missing piece of the puzzle, or explaining the how/why of abdominal and body imaging, I truly enjoy my work.”
