My only opinion on Mass General pertains to the time when I wanted to get a second opinion on a PET/CT scan that I had had, so I sent my PET/CT CD-ROM via FedEx to Mass General Imaging Department
for a 2nd opinion. I was very satisfied with the report that their radiologist prepared for me. It was more detailed than the report from my original radiologist, and it clarified a number of issues for me. This is my only experience with Mass General.
PET/CT scans are particularly difficult to interpret and are prone to many types of False Positive / False Negative errors. That's why I sent three of mine out for second opinions.
Out of the three places where I have sent CD-ROMs for PET/CT scan second opinions over the years, Mass General was the best in my opinion.
