In brief: Yes

Many times the radiologist can miss a subtle tear or flip lesion in the knee.
This may be because it does not show on the scan (because of the 5-7mms between slices) or because it just was not seen. I see many patients for second opinions that the original surgeon never even looked at the images with their own eyes, they only read the report.
