In New York Times article by Gina Kolata raises the question on variability on MRI reports. According to her-"Just as big a problem as the erratic quality of M.R.I. scans is the tendency of doctors and patients to rely on them too much"
Yes i agree there is a variability in results but isnt it true for everyything in medical profession. All depends on the quality of machines and kind of exposure the docotr has to the particular specilaity and also kind of inputs he has recieved with the studies. Very often we radiologiosts recieve requistion forms with no clinical details at all!
