Second Opinion® may not detect or mark all regions that are indicative of a pathology. Users must always exercise their professional interpretative skills to determine whether any pathologic and non-pathologic features warranting clinical attention are present in radiographs processed by Second Opinion®.


● Effectiveness and safety have been established only for detections in bitewing and periapical radiographic image types. Any features detected and highlighted on radiographs types other than bitewing and periapical cannot be used by the clinician to assist in radiographic evaluations. As an added safety provision, prior to detection processing, Second Opinion® deploys a CV Model that classifies submitted radiographs into types: Bitewing, Periapical, and Other. If an image is categorized as Other, the Second Opinion®Client will display a message to the user indicating that the image type is not supported.


● All images submitted for SecondOpinion® processing must be JPEG, RVG, DCM, TIFF, PNG, and DIC. SecondOpinion® may not function properly if an image in an unsupported format is submitted.
