Malpractice and Radiologists: High cost of misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose
But radiologists think their risk for malpractice liability is too high. Get a free review of your potential case via the form below.
In recent news about malpractice in radiology, a new report based on two long-term studies finds that radiologists who work in breast imaging tend to perceive their risk of malpractice liability to be higher than it actually is.
This perception is probably based on the fact that most medical malpractice lawsuits involve a failure to detect breast cancer--a very serious form of malpractice.
Radiology is a specialty field in medicine primarily dealing with the interpretation of diagnostic films like CT scans, MRI, x-rays, ultrasounds, sonograms and other methods of imaging.
Radiologists are often called in to review these scans for injured people to diagnose internal injury, bleeding, and fractures.
Errors in reading x-rays, MRIs and CT scans are a very common form of medical malpractice.
When radiologists misread or misinterpret films, the patient can suffer some severe consequences.
