Radiology Mistakes and Medical Malpractice
April 08, 2022
If you were injured because a radiologist made a mistake reading your X-ray, MRI, CT scan, ultrasound, or sonogram, you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries, related losses, and medical expenses. Radiologists are specialist medical doctors whose job is to interpret diagnostic images. Making an error when analyzing images can cause other providers to misdiagnose a serious illness or to make no diagnosis at all. The result of a radiology mistake can be unnecessary treatment, wrong treatment, or no treatment. All of these can lead to further injury, illness, or, in the worst cases, death.
Consequences of a Radiology Mistake
Mistakes by a radiologist can have serious consequences for patients. One of the most common radiology errors is determining that an abnormal image is normal. The consequences of this include the failure to diagnose cancer, the failure to diagnose a bone fracture, and the failure to diagnose an aneurysm. Such mistakes by a radiologist can lead to incorrect treatment, delayed treatment, or no treatment at all. When a patient’s condition becomes worse as a result, the victim may be eligible for compensation through a medical malpractice claim or lawsuit.
