  • An expert opinion about the findings and results of your study.
  • A confirmation of your diagnosis or a differing opinion.
  • Necessary information to make informed decisions when discussing your imaging results with your treating physician.

What are the reasons for declining Second Opinion? [Code Decline_SO]

AT TeleradiologyHub, we have a diligent and a process approach to cater to a review of your MRI or CT Scan or other radiological studies. Our second-opinion process starts with your uploading of the Diagnostic Data and your clinical history. The most important part is reasoni for second opinion, that usually sets the direction of focused enhanced and comparative study. Most of the times, it requires us to assist you in curating the data in shape. RRP accesses the dignostic details, clinical history, your complaints and prepares review framework. Later the case is handed over to Experts/Senior Panel. But in between or after RRP can decline to provide second opinion as expected  earlier.

There several reasons to do so. 

What is a code DECLINE_SO?

When the code DECLINE_SO is triggered, ithe process of second opinion is suspended . Subsequently, TeleradiologyHub  Panel withdraws from review process.  Second-Opinion/Terms-Conditions are applicable in all cases. Following reason(s) areenought to trigger the above code:

D1. Dicom Images provided are of inferior quality and  low resolution
D2. The primary report is not made available, whereas Panel thinks its crucial for review process
D3. Fees payment delayed or  related Issues
D4. The clinical history is not privided and the client is not reachable on the call
D5. Insignificant or unrelated queries asked/ Behaviour non acceptable
D6. Expectinging cross results from MRI or CT images or vice versa
D7. Queries related to physiological changes  or clinical aspects involved in opinion making
D8. Dicom image folder misses the sequence to which the second opinion query is linked
D9. Misc reasons due to unexplainable hygiene factors
D10. Experts think, the expectations are untenable
D11. Time taken is long due to accidental reasons
D12. Expert drops the study for unknown  reasons

CODE has following consequences:
-Second Opinion Process stops. 
-Any action that is regarded as appropriate by the Panel

Do I get a second opinion for legal purpose?

Most of the times, the cases in medical field require triangulation of the opinion. There could be different interpretations of the same studies, therefore doctors discretion is advised. None of the reviews are final but better jugged.  That means, if you or your consultant still carry a doubt, it necessitates further opinions triggering more enhanced reading by bigger panel  More opinions help you or your consultant to look the same case from different perspective- assures you that you are more informed.

The radiology opinions are not standard yardstick to measure the state of health, even if they are accurate. Clinically checked opinions have better advantage over such opinions, therefore we do not advice the reviews for legal purpose- it will have no sanctity in the courts of law  nor even in case of disputes.

Please read following terms and condition before seeking second opinion on this site.

1. A comparative study is an essential part of Second Opinion therefore it mandates client to submit earlier reports and investigations.  Any discrepancies in the report, thereafter, will be sole responsibility of client. 

2. In case of data insufficiency, or if panel is not convinced to take up the study, the fees will be refunded back to only  receiving account ( Paypal/Credit/Debit Card/ Google/UPI ) after deducting 18% administration charges. This is also because, a lot of work has already been done just after you submit a opinion form or request.

3. The data that we have received from,you we assume,  has your consent to share with experts, panels,  Internal team, radioligists and stakeholders. We will ensure your identity not made public.

4. The second opinion service on Teleradiologyhub is for self assurance purpose only, therefore,  it should not be produced before any courts or insurance authorities. Neither the platform nor the reporting Radiologist shall be liable for legal or financial claim due to second opinion.  Our radiologists have licences and malpractice insurance coverage in their respective home countries. Therefore, this second opinions may not qualify for insurance claim in your country.  Due to their great experience in reporting similar cases (which you can see on their profiles and pixel), we think that you can get benefited. Teleradiologyhub panel does additional reviews on top of it. If you feel unsatisfied with the experts opinion, the panel can even set up a seperate Panel bench of 4-5 Radioligists for review of the second opinion. We ensure that your case is in safe hands. Thanks to Teleradiologyhub rating system!!

5. The Second Opinion Account is for limited time, it will be closed within  2 hours of second opinion beings served.Therefore clients are advised to use Q&A facility at earliest.

6. TeleradiologyHub team chooses experts to work on your case, based on several factors including skills and availability of the radiologist. Clients should not demand or challenge the selection in later stages.

7. When second opinion on this platform contradicts primary opinion, our radioligists offer a logical ground often. If clients are not satisfied with the explanations, they can ask for higher Panel of 4-5 Radiologist on paid basis. Teleradiologyhub does not entertain any discussions with the primary consultant, also it does not discard any alternative views in some cases.

8. The responsibility of communication is with client. In this virtual environment, we do not claim reliability or identity of both sides including data integrity. We work in the best interest of the Dignostic outcomes. In case of data insufficiency or radiologists are not convinced with the case parameters, they can retract from the case. There should not be overdependence on second opinion as clinical findings have greater importance.

9. Any paid consultation session would be max 15 min.

10. The Client has to cooperate with RRP (Resident Radiologist Panel) on request for recall, new data demand and additional payments if any. There are different situations, like at times when a Single Second Opinion request  actually warrants multiple studies. Because of different experts from category radiologist chosen, the fees would be in multiple of studies undertaken. Every study is charged differently by experts. There might be also situation when RRP is satisfied to recall of given opinion  in the wake of new insight or data or experts analysis or anything else. This is helpful to client as RRP will then submit the improved opinion.

Difficulties and your cooperation

1. Do not negotiate. All second opinion cases are monitored by RRP in real time even if it is 2AM in the morning. They finish several tasks like case referencing, due-diligence, follow-up, data storage & transfer support, requisitions, language support, communication, pursuing Experts, etc. Overall case management is quite a serious task that consumes a good resources - at times more than given budget. 
2. Provide primary report. In the absence of primary reports, it will not be a second opinion study, it will be again a primary study but under changed times and under the lack of fresh clinical impressions. Hence it unnecessarily requires Panel discretion in studying an old imaging protocol undertaken at the request of (unknown) Consultant opinion. In such cases, contradictions cant be ruled out.
3. Economise questions. For more than TWO questions, report can be sent to a consultation group (PCG). It is short of asking for another review.
4. Patience.  Ordinary channel of second opinion takes good hours to conduct research on case, more hours for more complex studies.  If you are ready to pay more for faster research and invite more seniors to study your case and/or make it more attractive for expert to engage, you may try express channel. In this case, experts might hold off his other activities and priortise your case..
5. Data Sufficiency.  If panel finds data insufficient, the second opinion study can not go ahead as planned until the data is made available. It can happen at any stage.
6. Automatic consent. The data that we receive from you will have an automatic consent to share with parties involved and second opinion  thus got here- will not stand as a proof in any court of law.  Before moving ahead on second opinion process, everyone shall read and agree upon our Second-Opinion/Terms-Conditions.

*Teleradiologyhub is a virtual online platform that facilitates dialogue between opinion seekers and radiologists. It saves search and travel cost, time and helps in getting the best 'global' opinion sitting at home. As always, there are a few risks of virtual offering. For example patient is not seen clinically or otherwise by the Radiologists. We understand this limitation, hence do not take any guarantee of accuracy of data, opinion or diagnosis.  That does not stop us from working towards bettering diagnostic outcomes.
