A 37-year-old female asked:
If something suspicious is seen on a pelvic ultrasound would the radiologist come in to see himself?

Not necessarily : In many offices it would depend upon office protocol. Other offices leave it up to the technologist whether she or he is comfortable in the findings of the exam. If they do not feel comfortable of the findings, they may ask the radiologist to come in and review the study with them. If they are comfortable, the radiologist will review the study once submitted to them.
