As per recent study, conducted at Massachusetts
General Hospital, Boston USA, the major diagnostic discrepancies / errors
are up to 20-30% of cases, suggesting that the working or final clinical
diagnosis may be wrong in as many as one in five patients overall.
Diagnostic errors are estimated to account for 40,000–80,000 deaths annually in U.S. hospitals alone. These figures only partially account for patients whose ambulatory misdiagnoses lead to death, and they do not include nonlethal disability, which may be just as common as death.
Approximately 4% of radiologic interpretations rendered by radiologists in daily practice contain errors due to many reasons.
The error rate can be easily reduced by 'Peer Review' where report generated by Primary Radiologist is reviewed by second Radiologist. But unfortunately it is not done in 95% Diagnostic centers. Our goal is to provide Second opinion to substantially reduce the potential of a misdiagnosis and prevent unnecessary costly, painful, and even potentially harmful treatment.

Real Patients, Real Reviews
I am from the United States, and recently encountered a situation where a problem with hospital records led to me receiving a terse and frightening report from the hospital. At first I was nervous to use an internet second opinion service, but when they showed me the profile page of the radiologist who would read my scan (Dr. Mandal) it was clear that she was very experienced and knowledgeable and that I would be in good hands! Dr. Mandal's second opinion report was very detailed and thorough, and explained how she had arrived at the conclusions that she reached. It was very reassuring to have a better understanding of what my scan meant, and to know that this could be a normal finding if you had recently had surgery (something that wasn't mentioned in the report I got from the hospital). I also like that teleradiologyhub.com did a good job with communication - I got a phonecall from them soon after I had placed the order to explain their process. And it was definitely, definitely worth it -- they did a fantastic job! Great service, would definitely use them again!!
