You have had an imaging test "MRI, CT, PET CT, Ultrasound, Nuclear MEdicine, Mammogram, XRAY etc" and would have recieved a reprot from the radiologist who interpreted the test. A second opinion is getting a subspecailty radiologist to provide a second intepretation.
With DocPanel, a radiological second opinion is done by having one of our US-based, academic and fellowship trained, board certified subspecialty radiologists look at your scans to provide their opinion on the scans’ findings. The radiologist will assess your scans and the clinical documents you submit and provide their opinion using their expertise.
To get a second opinion, you simply make an account to submit your scans and relevant clinical documents. Scan Types include X-Ray, MRI, CT, PET CT, Nuclear Medicine, Mammogram, Ultrasound.
Scans must be uploaded in their DICOM format (.dcm file extension) from the files you receive from your imaging provider (either from a disc, thumb drive, or downloaded from a portal). Radiologists cannot provide a report based on pictures of JPEG formats.
Once you have uploaded your scans and documents, you can move forward in selecting your chosen radiologists or have DocPanel select your radiologist for no additional charge. You will then be prompted for payment information.
Payments are processed once the radiologist has published your second opinion report. Once the report is published, you will receive an email with a link to your published report to the same email you registered for DocPanel with.Watch our video to learn more
If you are facing a challenging or difficult diagnosis or treatment, you may want to double check your results. Sometimes radiologists over- or under-diagnose or even mis diagnose the findings in your images.
Many times treatment protocols are determined by the results of your radiology report.
A specialty radiologist dedicated to your particular problem or concern may not have read your exam. Specialty radiologists have been shown to have greater accuracy. In fact studies show that there is 30-35% increase in accuracy when a specialty radiologist provides a report.
Understanding your options is crucial when navigating through difficult health decisions.
If you are in a situation where you feel confused or concerned about your diagnosis and treatment plan, or have questions regarding your findings, then seeking a second opinion can provide you more clarity.
A second opinion can provide a different outlook on your scan OR confirm the original opinion provided by your first radiologist.
DocPanel supports the following scan types for submission: MRI, MRA, CT, CTA, PET-CT, Nuclear Medicine, X-Ray, Mammogram, and Ultrasound. All scans must be uploaded in the DICOM format (.dcm file extension) on our portal for one of our radiologists to provide an opinion.
