Study Sheds Light On Disturbing Trend In MRI Scans For Back Pain

CBS New York—February 17, 2017

CBS New York's medical reporter Dr. Max Gomez reports on a new study that said that commonly prescribed exams and the doctors who read the MRI scans may be getting it wrong leading to wrong treatment.

"We found an average diagnostic error rate of 12.5 per exam and a misrate of 43 percent per exam compared to our reference exams," said Richard J. Herzog, MD, FACR, radiologist at HSS and lead author on the study.
