Imaging Tests: A Key Element of Medical Diagnosis
Radiological imaging is widely used to diagnose diseases such as cancers, precancerous tumors and lesions, and stomach disorders. If you have symptoms or concerns about any of these illnesses, your doctor may order one or more of the following tests:
- X-ray radiography
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Computed tomography (CT) scans
- Ultrasound imaging
These tests are only effective when radiologists read the results correctly. Radiologists are highly trained to distinguish between normal conditions and the signs of disease, and they can be held accountable when they do not follow professional standards in reading test results.
Harmed by Radiological Misdiagnosis? Contact Us Today.
When radiologists fail to see potential signs of disease on the results of imaging tests, critical treatment can be delayed. This can, in turn, significantly reduce patients' chances of full recovery. Our firm pursues claims against radiologists who commit this type of malpractice.
