Image reader: Radiographic reader mri and x-rays are radiographic images, so i assume you call the apparatus, radiographic reader. Radiologists are physicians that read radiographs, i assume one day we will have smart devices that can do the same.
Dr. Philip Chao

Ha the doctor: Images from all our tests do not interpret themselves. There are specialists who have years of experience to read your images. I have 28 years MRI experience with a dual MRI body fellowship and a senior member of the asnr.
