Radiology Consulting

What is medical consulting?

A general medical consultation refers to seeking opinions, recommendations, or treatment from a physician other than the one treating you.

Your doctor may ask another physician, often a specialist, to review your diagnosis and treatment. Patients can also seek this type of consultation, which is called getting a second opinion.

The consulting physician reviews your current diagnostic tests, medical records, and treatments. Then they write a report giving their professional opinion based on the current information. If you or your doctors have asked for treatment recommendations, they may request additional diagnostic imaging or testing.

What is radiology consulting?

Radiology consultations may occur when an attorney or insurance company asks an All County Radiology radiologist to review a patient’s existing diagnostic imaging and give them an interpretation of the images. This type of consultation is usually associated with insurance claims.

In most cases, physicians refer patients to All County Radiology for a radiology consultation, which means they need X-rays, an MRI, or other diagnostic imaging. 

During this consultation, your All County Radiology provider may perform the imaging procedure requested by your physician. Or they could review your medical history and recommend the best imaging technique based on your health needs.
