Radiology Malpractice

[column width=”3/4″ last=”true” title=”” title_type=”single” animation=”none” implicit=”true”]

ospitals provide a variety of diagnostic and interventional radiologic services that can sometimes result in errors causing injury or even death. These services may include X-rays, CT Scans, MRI Scans, Mammograms, PET Scans, Sonograms, SPECT Imaging, and Ultrasounds.

The most common diagnostic and interventional radiologic safety rule violations include:

  • Delay in reporting emergency medical condition reflected on images
  • Missing important evidence of anatomic abnormalities on images
  • Misinterpreting significant evidence of disease in CT’s, MRI’s, or x-ray images
  • Negligently administering radiolucent contrast dyes
  • Mammogram misreads

Interventional Radiology is a subspecialty of radiology that uses minimally invasive image guided procedures to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system. Interventional radiology procedures:

  • Paracentesis and thoracentesis
  • Carotid stenting
  • Cerebral angiography
  • Thoracic aortic graft placement
  • Intravascular stents
  • Intravascular ultrasound
  • Noninvasive arterial and venous evaluations
  • Percutaneous atherectomy
  • Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty
  • Thrombolytic therapy
  • Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS)
  • Vertebroplasty and spine interventions
