Misdiagnosis of Diagnostic Radiology Test
Diagnostic radiology provides a minimally invasive means of looking inside the body.
Through various diagnostic radiology tests, doctors are able to diagnose such conditions as broken bones, soft tissue injuries, heart disease, brain damage, cancer and fetal disease.
However, the test is only as good as the doctor who interprets it. Misdiagnosis can result in missed opportunities for treatment or the receipt of unnecessary, harmful treatments.
