Magnetic Resonance Imaging is one of the most sophisticated and powerful imaging and diagnostic modalities that a radiologist has at his or her disposal.

Thoracic surgeon said hemartoma, radiologists said lung nodule is possibly cancer.Who should I believe?
Depends: This depends on the size of the nodule and its characteristics on ct. Presence of fat and popcorn like calcifications in the nodule may suggest a harmatoma.

Chest pains. Echo scan = septal hypokinesis. Hr 138 BP 138/90. Ambulance to a&e. Doc says possible pericarditis. A&e says muscular skelelightous.
Pericarditis or not?: Pericarditis should not result in septal hypokinesis by echo. You may have myopericarditis (involvement of the heart muscle and the coverings of the heart), or a false-positive finding by echo (sometimes it looks like hypokinesis but it is actually not).

Funny: Being an orthopedic surgeon i'd say we are because we get the clinical correlation with understanding the specific injury and location of the patients pain and the physical examination.
