New York, NY (PRWEB) May 23, 2014
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) readings are far beyond the comprehension of many people. Designed to look at deep tissue, MRIs are one of the most popular diagnostic tools in sports therapy and are just as impossible for the general public to understand. In fact, in order to understand an MRI reading, one must be a radiologist—or at least have taken a radiology course. That’s why Manhattan Physical Therapy & Pain Center now offers analyses of MRI readings for those patients who want a second opinion.
Undergoing an MRI can cause anxiety and stress, and many people prefer second opinions—after all, to err is human, and one never knows if a mistake goes unnoticed the first time around. Getting a second look may catch a mistake or simply allow one to trust the first reading.
No matter where a patient underwent his or her MRI, the reading is his or her legal property. Were a patient interested in an MRI analysis by a physical therapist at the Manhattan Physical Therapy & Pain Center, he or she would simply bring it in or fax it to the office. If he or she did not have a physical copy, he or she could simply have the MRI reading faxed to the office.
