Do you have copies of the imaging & reports? I think that would be advisable.
I'm skeptical about there not being a mixup in the original MRI as well. I doubt they are wrong as often as they are mixed up. Seeing tears where there were none AND no hardware where there was some is just too much (IMO) for coincidence. Mixups happen in the medical arena at rates far higher than acceptable in other industries.

I think a second MRI needs to be done, but not at your expense (since the MRI in question probably wasn't yours
). I think multiple opinions are in order, and if one of those were a malpractice atty., I wouldn't object. If there is no case there, an atty would not want to get involved. It would come down to whether or not you were harmed by the error.
Just my personal opinion; feel free to ignore in whole or in part.
