These scans — such as X-rays, sonography (ultrasound), radiology study, MRI, CT scan, PET scan and VQ scan — are used in hospitals and clinics every day, and patients trust the insight they provide.
Common radiology errors include:
- Technicians and staff that fail to properly conduct tests
- Misinterpretation of the results, leading to misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
- Communication errors between radiologists and treating physicians
- Improper conclusions by the doctors or staff
In some cases, the radiologist may use too much radiation, harming the patient.
Significant harm can also occur when the doctor or radiologist uses interventional radiology to treat a condition. This allows the doctor to enter the body with minimal invasion.
