Radiologists face highest rate of malpractice claims for breast cancer

Radiologists provide critical diagnostic testing analysis to patients all across the United States. When their analysis is unfounded, under-examined or otherwise negligent, potentially deadly consequences can result. There are many reasons why one might have cause to sue a radiologist who has deviated from required standards of patient care. However, a new study indicates that patients most frequently file medical malpractice claims against radiologists due to delayed breast cancer diagnosis issues.

FDA Cautions against too much Radiation in Kids' X-rays and CT Scans

The use of radiological medical imaging such as X-rays and CT scans has become an important tool for diagnosis and treatment. However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is concerned about exposing children to too much radiation. Experts explain that children are especially vulnerable to the risk of developing cancer from the imaging.

Training of Radiologists and Other Technological Medical Staff Should be Improved

It shouldn't take news of the fall-out from the Japanese nuclear meltdown to remind health care providers that radiation levels must be monitored closely. This is especially true when children are involved. Children's cells divide more quickly than adults, making kids more vulnerable to the effects of radiation.
