Thank you--in some countries double radiology interpretations are required (e.g., Sweden) and we might find addition evidence for value of collective intelligence.


As one proxy measure for error,  we looked at the addenda rate in radiology reports and noted fewer addenda when a radiology resident had co-interpreted with us. Many hypothesized just the opposite. This suggests that 2 pair of eyes serves our patients better than one pair. AI may do the same to augment our abilities. Parenthetically, women radiologists were more likely to perform addenda than men. This leads to further social science questions.
