spacer Dr. Herbst is a qualified expert in general radiology and particularly in MRI. More than half of his time is spent doing neuroradiology, including brain and spine studies. He reads about 10-30 studies daily, mostly MR scans, but also including radiographs, CT scans, and other modalities. About 20% of his time spent on and about 39% of his income arising from cases sent to him by attorneys for overreads.

While Dr. Herbst does not ask the attorney what side of the case he or she represents before reading a scan, currently about 80% of the cases that come in the door are from plaintiffs and 20% from defendants.
