Imaging technologies can be life-saving devices. X-rays and CT scans serve an important role in the early detection of diseases. However, equipment failure, human error, and a lack of communication between a physician and lab can have devastating consequences.Radiology errors usually involve failure to consult the old radiologic studies or reports, limitations in imaging technique, failing to obtain an accurate and complete history from a patient, lack of knowledge, and failure to continue to search for abnormalities after the first abnormality was found.At Izzo Law Office, we help you protect yourself. We want you to be your own advocate who owns and asserts your health and legal rights. The medical staff you “hired” has fallen short, requiring you to retain an attorney to hold them responsible.
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.
The discovery of hospital negligence creates confusion. Janet Izzo will spend time with you to answer your questions and provide you with the knowledge you need — knowledge that gives you power when you feel powerless.
