Yes: It is not possible thanks to the internet and cloud-image transfer service. If you'd like our practice currently offers a service - http://www.Massgeneralimaging.Org/secondopinion.

Certainly: Now-a-days it is very simple to have a disc copy of original x-rays, ultrasounds, nuclear medicine, MRI or pet scans. Thus very portable and either a radiologist or other specialist can give a second opinion. However, best to make sure that second opinion is at least of equal or has greater experience that the first opinion.
