Following our discussion here a  about the merits of forming an unbiased opinion prior to reading previous information, I found a paper which talks exactly about that, by N. Thorne Griscom, MD from the Children's Hospital in Boston: A Suggestion: Look at the Images First, Before You Read The History. Radiology, April 2002, 9-10. It is a short but well written paper. It's free online, on

I believe it applies to any diagnostic situation where a patient is referred by another doctor with assumptions and diagnoses already made by someone else.
