Here are some of the most common radiological mistakes that may lead to malpractice:
- Misinterpretation of a CT scan, MRI, ultrasound, X-Ray, sonogram and more, leading to the patient suffering negative health effects such as the spread of cancer that may have been easily excised, the ballooning and bursting of a weak artery, the unborn baby going through a difficult delivery due to macrosomia, and so on.
- Communication errors where they do not notify lab or the patient of any anomalies found in the scanned images, which leads to a false sense of security, or a period of calm before the storm, leading to irreversible health complications.
- Medication errors, where the patient is prescribed incorrect medication, prescribed the wrong dosage, or not prescribed medication at all. In fact, this is such a common occurrence in radiology that it is estimated that radiologists make medication errors up to seven times more than other physicians.
