Copious Coffee Breaks and Neuroradiology Errors

Fresh off the press in AJNR:

Lower [neuroradiology] shift volumes yielded significantly lower error rates. The lowest error rates were observed with shift volumes that were limited to 19–26 [CT/MRI] studies. Error rates at shift volumes between 67–90 studies were 226% higher, compared with the error rate at shift volumes of ≤ 19 studies.

I wonder, are there any places in the world routinely reading ~20 cases per shift?

Double reads would also be more accurate, but who’s going to fund that. Are those authors in a fantasy world?

Double reads for all, can you imagine?
