Michigan Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice Help
Radiologists are doctors who specialize in diagnosing and treating diseases and injuries using medical imaging techniques, such as x-rays, ultrasounds, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine, or positron emission tomography (PET). Radiologists may be medical doctors (MD) or doctors of osteopathy (DO).
As diagnostic technology evolves, and radiologists are increasingly involved with patient management, the opportunity for radiology mistakes increases. If you or a family member has been a victim of a radiology mistake, Muth Law can help you.
How Radiology Malpractice Mistakes Happen, and What They Mean
Doctors rely more and more on radiology reports to diagnose illnesses. Radiology mistakes can cause your illness to be misdiagnosed, or missed altogether. A delay in diagnosing illness can have catastrophic results.
Radiology mistakes occur in a number of ways, including:
- Failure to order the proper diagnostic tests
- Incorrect interpretation of a diagnostic test
- Interpreting an abnormal test result as normal, or a normal one as abnormal
- Failure to identify a bone fracture
- Failure to diagnose cancer
- Failure to diagnose an aneurysm
- Failure to communicate results to a primary care physician or other doctor involved in making the patient's care decisions
You submit to medical tests, sometimes numerous or invasive ones, trusting that the tests selected will be helpful, and that results will be properly interpreted and communicated so you can get the treatment you need. It's devastating to learn that a diagnosis was botched and your health compromised due to a radiology mistake. You're facing an unnecessarily hard battle, and all you want is to have your life back to normal.
