Radiology mistakes occur mostly when a health care provider fails to see what these images are meant to show. For example, after a car accident if there was any trauma to your head it is standard procedure for a CT head scan and even sometimes an MRI to be performed. These are performed to catch any bleeds or clots that have occurred as a result of hitting your head during the accident. If the bleed or clot is not seen by the health provider the consequences can cause a failure to diagnose leading treatment to be delayed, and can even result in death. The same can be true for cancerous tumors, bowel obstructions, broken limbs, etc.

The consequences of a radiologist’s mistake can be severe and life threatening, if you or a loved one are the victim of this kind of medical malpractice you should contact our Pennsylvania radiology malpractice lawyers.
