Radiology Malpractice Lawyers in Detroit & Southfield Michigan

Radiologists

Technological advances have provided physicians with ever more sophisticated tools to aid in the diagnosis of disease in their patients. Imaging studies such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), CAT and CT scans, and various forms of ultrasound are a vital part of health care, and treatment decisions depend upon their accuracy. But it’s ultimately the responsibility of the radiologist to carefully review and interpret imaging studies.

When Does Radiology Malpractice Occur?

When radiologists neglect to make accurate diagnoses, when they fail to detect and describe what appears on a study, the consequences are often devastating – a malignant tumor may be missed, an abscess may be overlooked, or a fracture may not be brought to the attention of a physician working in an emergency department. The failure to diagnose a medical condition means a delay in treatment, and a delay in treatment often means that a patient suffers needlessly. Tumors grow and spread, infections worsen, and bones don’t heal.
