Pelvic MRI with contrast... 2nd opinions

Are there any Radiologists in Colorado, USA that will read my MRI from Nov 2021 and compare it to my 2017 MRI? I believe this is called getting a second opinion.

Imaging company#1 said no, because their radiologists do not want to "Step on anyone's toes"

Company number 2 said they just cannot do that sort of thing...


I feel like I got my toes stepped. But each company would do a new mri and make comparison.


Thanks

    Is there any risk associated with getting MRI's... multiple MRI's over time?

    Skelly31,

    I have never heard of any risk with getting MRI's. I have had 3 MRI's & 3 Biopsies.

    Hope this helps!

    There appears to be a 'brotherhood' among those (Colorado) MRI specialists.

    Do you have the MRI reports; if so, you could at least compare them.

    Perhaps an academic center will be of a broader mind regarding this issue.
