Michael, how could you design a study that shows the numbers of lives saved with double reading. I believe if we focus on lives saved we could move the safety movement along much faster.

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.
