When getting a scan done you always want the right doctor treating your child, but 90% of pediatric radiology is being performed by general radiologists with an average of just 3 months training in the pediatric subspecialty.
The result? Children are getting “over-imaged” and “under/mis-diagnosed” by adult Radiologists who are treating them like tiny adults rather than physiologically and biologically unique young humans.
By giving patients access to specialty radiologists who've trained or currently work at Harvard Medical School, Boston Children's Hospital, USC, and more to get a second opinion, the patient will always benefit. A Mayo Clinic study found that 88% of patients that seek a second opinion leave with a more refined or changed diagnosis.
