Nearly 70% of Body MRI Interpretations Have At Least One Discrepancy

A recent study conducted by UVM and USC Medical Center found that nearly 70% of body MRI interpretations have at least one discrepancy, particularly with abdominal and pelvic scans. The high discrepancy rates were linked to non-subspecialty interpretations. Another study found that 23% of patients diagnosed with liver cancer don’t actually have cancer.

Ensure accuracy and prevent misdiagnosis with a subspecialty second opinion.

Benefits of a Liver Lesions Second Opinion

Once a liver lesion is detected, a radiologist will need to identify the type and nature of the lesion (cancerous vs. noncancerous). This is extremely important, as the correct treatment and management approach varies greatly from one kind of liver lesion to the next. But liver lesions can share similar characteristics on imaging, requiring specific expertise to accurately identify and diagnose them.

A second opinion can help ensure:

  • the liver lesion is correctly identified
  • that cancer, if present, is accurately staged
  • that the option for surgical resection is properly evaluated
  • that you have an opportunity to voice your questions and concerns
