In today’s medical field, medical imaging is essential for diagnosis and treatment. Without radiological or medical imaging procedures, doctors cannot fully evaluate what is wrong with a patient. Doctors need those studies to see what is happening inside a patient’s body. Radiological or medical imaging studies reveal conditions that acutely relate to the patient’s symptoms. Failure to properly read one can be devastating.
- A missed fracture can lead to a larger fracture or surgery or even amputation.
- A missed mammogram can lead to mastectomy or the spreading of cancer.
- A missed tumor can lead to death.
A mistake involving misread radiological or medical imaging films is medical malpractice. When a condition goes unnoticed or untreated, further complications or even death may occur.
