How Do Radiology Errors Occur?
Common radiology errors include:
- Failing to properly identify abnormalities shown in films
- Misidentifying abnormalities shown in films
- Incorrect scanning technique
Such errors can occur when radiologists read mammograms, CT scans, X-rays, MRIs, ultrasounds and PET scans. The results can be delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of cancer, fractures, blood clots and other conditions that can lead to serious illness. Our attorneys undertake personal injury lawsuits and wrongful death claims to help clients cope with these disastrous consequences.
