Common Causes of Radiology Errors and Misreads
A radiologist's or diagnostic technician's failure to properly read tests results can sometimes literally mean the difference between life and death, particularly when patients are suffering from cancer, strokes, brain injuries, aortic aneurysms and other serious conditions.
Radiology errors may easily occur when a radiologist or diagnostic technician:
- Fails to use proper imaging techniques
- Fails to properly interpret the results
- Fails to provide appropriate recommendations for follow-up treatment
- Fails to check a patient's prior radiologic results
- Fails to comply with appropriate departmental policies
- Receives incorrect or inadequate information from the patient's physician
