Radiologist Errors Can Result In A Misdiagnosis Of Cancer Or Other Illness
Smaller hospitals do not have the budgets to staff overnight radiologists. They use them on an on-call basis, allowing a radiology tech to run the X-ray and send the results to a radiologist off-site. Breakdowns in communication are often the result. Important information is not relayed to the doctor. The end result could be misdiagnoses of serious diseases, including cancer.
Medical setbacks and injuries also occur when physicians fail to:
- Order the necessary studies
- Read MRIs, mammograms, or other radiographic studies accurately
- Use contrast or dye available to them
Medical technologies are continually growing in their effectiveness and sophistication. However, the cutting-edge technology is undermined when trusted professionals fail to adhere to the basic standards of medical care.
