Why get a second opinion?

All Radiologists work hard to avoid mistakes but errors occur for many reasons and reducing these risks in a busy hospital environment can be challenging. The best way to get the right answer and avoid harm is to seek an expert second opinion.

The volume of medical imaging performed in the UK increases year on year.  However, the UK has the lowest numbers of Radiologists per head of population in Europe. When these issues are combined with interpretation factors (detailed right), it is easy to understand why misdiagnosis and discrepancy can occur.

At Ambia Health we are dedicated to delivering accurate imaging reports by ensuring that scans are only reviewed by Radiologists with specific expertise in your area of concern (e.g. musculoskeletal radiology, cancer imaging, neuroradiology). Furthermore, each second opinion report is reviewed again by one of the partners to ensure clarity and provide further confidence.

Different Radiologists may interpret the same scan image differently depending on:
