Definition and Explanation of Radiology Overreads

An overread, also spelled or over-read or over read, is not a primary interpretation of an “inside study”. Overread studies are secondary radiology interpretations and reports provided by a specialized radiologist, usually at an “outside facility” upon request from a requesting physician or third party administrator. Radiology overreads are normally requested to confirm a prior study diagnosis that was initially provided by the initial radiologist or physician. In some overread studies, a radiologist will simply review the study and provide an interpretation for incidental findings.
