This retrospective review of imaging studies submitted to a second institution for a second interpretation (over-read) revealed that more than 10% had clinically significant changes between the original interpretation and the second interpretation. Nearly one-quarter of the changes were classified as emergent, requiring immediate notification to a treating clinician. These results demonstrate how imaging interpretation can affect timely and accurate diagnosis.
