Failure to Properly Read X-Rays or Mammograms
Mammogram Error Attorneys Radiologists spend their working hours reviewing and interpreting X-rays, CT scans, MRIs and other images to detect the presence of illness or injury. Radiology, perhaps more so than other areas of medicine, is repetitive. Radiologists look at similar images every single day. Radiologists must also deal with frequent interruptions and demands on their attention. Despite the monotony and interruptions, radiologists must accurately interpret every image they see. When radiologists lose focus, are distracted, or simply fail to look closely, the result can be tragic. When these professionals fail to detect the presence of cancer or some other illness, patients lose critical time.In these situations, not only does the patient face a greater risk of dying, but the patient may be forced to attempt painful treatments that would not have been necessary. For example, when radiologists miss the presence of breast cancer and this cancer is allowed to spread unchecked, a woman may require a mastectomy or double mastectomy instead of less invasive measures.
