How Do Radiology Errors Occur?

When patients require radiology work, they expect that the results of the tests will be correctly read and interpreted. When radiologists fail to meet their duty of care, the consequences for the patient can be devastating.

When a CT scan, X-ray, MRI, mammogram or ultrasound is performed, radiologists and doctors usually interpret the results correctly. At times, however, they look at the images, but fail to see the problem. Another possible cause of a radiology error is when a radiologist sees something life-threatening but fails to report it. When a life-threatening condition is detected, the radiologist must report the condition to the primary care physician immediately. In some cases, rather than immediately reporting it, the radiologist simply notes the condition in the radiology report, resulting in delayed treatment and possibly a serious injury or death.
