Minneapolis Radiology Error Attorney
When a radiologist misreads an X–ray or MRI
And X–ray, MRI or CT scan can be invaluable in diagnosing a medical condition — or in ruling out suspected conditions. When a radiologist misreads or misinterprets the test results, a patient can be mistakenly subjected to unnecessary treatment, the wrong treatment or no treatment.
- When a cancer is missed, for example, the cancer is given more time to grow — and possibly grow beyond any hope of control or cure.
- A radiological error that causes a misdiagnosis can mean the patient is treated for a disease he or she does not have.
- If the radiology lab mixes up tests or misidentifies tests, one patient could be treated for another patient’s disease.
Radiology offers excellent opportunities to explore what is happening inside a patient. But when the results are misread, mislabeled or misinterpreted, the result can be serious harm, up to and including an unnecessary death. The victim deserves justice and financial compensation.
