Independent Radiology Reviews

Hello and thanks in advance for your help. Here is my question: When an xray is read in the UCC by the ordering physician, this is the wet or preliminary reading, right? When that same xray is then sent to the radiologist for a definitive reading and diagnosis, is this reading considered to be an 'independent' review/reading? The radiologists are not on-site with the UCC and the films are sent to them the next day.
