Radiology Misreads, Errors, Mistakes

Radiology Error Lawyers Serving Northern California

Radiology There are many illnesses and traumas that cannot be accurately detected without the use of radiological procedures. X-rays, MRIs and other types of radiology testing have revolutionized medicine in making diagnoses that save lives. These tests must be accurately read by trained and experienced radiologists, however, in order to effectively indicate a course of treatment. When mistakes are made, they can cause dangerous and even deadly consequences. At the San Jose medical malpractice law firm of Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard, L.L.P., we are experienced in handling cases involving radiology misreads, errors, and mistakes.

Radiology Malpractice in California

Doctors depend on the information they receive from radiological testing to help make diagnoses and set treatments in motion. Most physicians are not trained or qualified to precisely read the information derived from radiology tests, however. Radiologists are physicians who are specially trained to diagnose illnesses and traumatic injuries using medical imaging technologies including:

  • X-rays,
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI),
  • Computed Tomography Scans (CT Scans),
  • Nuclear medicine,
  • Position Emission Tomography Scans (PET Scans), and
  • Ultrasounds.

Radiologists report their findings to the treating physician and consult on a final diagnosis. When a test is misread or misinterpreted, it can lead to a missed diagnosis or an errant diagnosis. Consequently, the patient many not receive the proper course of treatment in a timely fashion or may receive the wrong treatment. Both of these situations can result in serious complications and can even contribute to the death of the patient.

Client Reviews
My experience with Attorney Brad Corsiglia during my recent medical malpractice case was nothing short of amazing given the very stressful circumstances. I was fortunate to find Brad highly recommended from a mutual contact and from the very beginning of the process, Brad was truly engaged and knowledgeable in understanding my case and providing input on what avenues were available to me.
