New York City Radiology Errors Lawyer
Aggressive Medical Malpractice Attorneys Represent Victims Of Radiology Mistakes In New York, NY
Modern radiology equipment allows for more precise diagnosis of health problems than ever before. CT (or “CAT”) scans, ultrasounds, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), digital x-rays, and other sophisticated diagnostic imaging systems enable radiologists to identify signs of diseases and disorders in their earliest stages. Countless lives have been saved as a result.
Conversely, radiology errors can cost lives. In many failure to diagnose and misdiagnosis cases, x-ray misperception and other radiology mistakes are the root problem. The New York City medical malpractice lawyers of Proner & Proner provide exceptional legal representation to people who have been harmed by radiology errors at hospitals in NYC and throughout New York. Our personal injury attorneys have the experience, resources, and tenacity to handle even the most complex medical malpractice cases.

Typical Radiology Errors
In “Malpractice Issues in Radiology,” radiologist Leonard Berlin alluded to published reports showing the error rate among radiologists to be approximately 30 percent. Of these errors, according to Chambersburg Imaging Associates (CIA), roughly 80 percent are errors of perception. In other words, the diagnostic film reveals an abnormality in the patient, but the radiologist fails to detect it.
Failures of communication between radiologists and physicians are another common source of dangerous medical errors.
Not all radiology errors are instances of negligence. However, when a potential health problem should reasonably have been identified and a patient becomes ill or dies as a result of the error, a medical malpractice lawsuit may be pursued.
Medication Errors And Radiology
In a study conducted by the United States Pharmacopeia, it was discovered that harmful medication errors were seven times more likely to occur during radiological procedures than in any other hospital environment.
