The Impact of a Radiology Mistake
Radiology mistakes can result in serious complications for a patient. Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis by a radiologist or physician is often caused by misreading or misinterpreting the radiologic image.
A radiology mistake can cause misdiagnosis or a delay in a treatment for a patient’s condition. This can vary from treatment for a broken bone, stroke and cancer. Common radiology mistakes include:
- Failure to diagnose an aneurysm
- Failure to diagnose cancer
- Failure to diagnose a bone fracture
- Misreading X-rays
- Administration of wrong dose of radiation
Imaging techniques include X-rays, MRIs, ultrasounds and CT scans. These scans play a vital role in diagnosing and treating a patient. A mistake can lead to serious complications and even death.
