Can You Read The X-ray Results Not To The Referring Doctor?
Good morning, u003cbr / u003eI want to ask if the X-ray results can be read by a different hospital? U003cbr / u003so my brother was rontegn at the JMC hospital and then I brought the X-ray results to the Pasar Minggu Hospital, but information from the doctor at the hospital RSUD asked us to ask the X-ray results to the JMC hospital. U003cbr / u003e u003cbr / u003 requesting enlightenment, u003cbr / u003e
Thank you for the question.
X-ray examination (X-ray) is one type of supporting examination that can be done to determine the diagnosis of various diseases. Referred to as a supporting examination, because the interpretation of the results of this examination cannot be done alone, but must also be confirmed by the results of interviews, physical examinations, and other supporting examinations conducted. That way, then the right treatment can be given.
X-ray examinations are carried out by the radiology department, which is not always available in all health facilities. After the examination is carried out, the results will be interpreted by a radiology specialist. Furthermore, the results of this examination are returned again to the doctor who submitted the examination for further inference as a basis for handling the patient.
Before answering your question, it needs to be clarified first, what X-ray do you mean? What kind of illness do your sister suffer? Does the hospital only question the interpretation of the X-ray examination, or return the patient to be treated back to the initial hospital that conducted the X-ray examination?
In fact, all doctors have the competence to read x-ray results. So, even though it was done in a different health facility, the results of the X-ray examination could still be interpreted. There are several conditions that may underlie the events that your sister experienced:
It may be that doctors only ask for interpretations from radiology specialists made based on the results of the x-ray examination, to prevent misinterpretation
It may be that the results of the X-ray examination that were done previously were unclear or could not adequately describe the illness, so the doctor suggested that the X-ray examination be done
Could be, hospital procedures that treat your sister does require that all supporting examinations must be done at the hospital so that it can be more accountable, and so on
Without checking your brother's condition directly, of course we are not authorized to assess the condition he experienced, whether it is correct or not. The good, you consult this directly with the doctor who examined your little brother huh ..
I hope this helps.
