Radiological Misdiagnosis

Medical Malpractice Attorneys for Radiology Errors in Denver, CO

Radiology – the aspect of medical practice that relies on x-rays and other medical imaging technology to diagnose patients’ illnesses and injuries – is indispensable in modern medicine. Without radiology, physicians, surgeons and other specialists would lack critical information for making informed decisions about their treatment recommendations, and patients would have to rely on other, less-certain methods for identifying the medical issues behind their pain and other symptoms.

Unfortunately, despite the benefits of radiology and the clearly-established protocols and procedures for performing and reviewing scans, doctors and technicians routinely make mistakes that have costly consequences for patients and their families. This is true not only in terms of the financial cost of dealing with an undiagnosed medical condition, but in terms of the physical and emotional tolls as well. Oftentimes, patients and their loved ones will experience life-long effects as a result of a misdiagnosis when their underlying condition could have – and should have – been fully treated.

Common Radiological Mistakes Resulting in Misdiagnoses

Radiology procedures include x-rays, mammograms, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans and computed tomography (CT or CAT) scans. Each type of scan is used to diagnose certain types of illnesses and injuries, and each has its own set of standards and procedures. Radiological mistakes can occur prior to, during and after the performance of these scans, and include:

  • Failure to order scans that are necessary for an accurate diagnosis
  • Failure to properly prep the patient for a scan
  • Failure to accurately read scan images
  • Failure to communicate scan results among hospital staff and physicians

These and other radiological mistakes can lead to misdiagnoses of medical conditions including:

  • Bone fractures
  • Pneumonia
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Vascular disease
  • Breast, lung and other types of cancer

While many radiology misdiagnosis cases involve errors relating to the reason for a scan being requested (i.e. failing to locate a fracture when a patient complains of sharp pain, tenderness and limited mobility), it is possible for errors to lead to unrelated diagnostic errors as well. For example, if an x-ray performed to examine a broken bone reveals a tumor, failure to relay the patient’s condition to an appropriate specialist can support a medical malpractice claim as well.
