Hospitals 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
