At Jane Clark Legal, we work closely with a diverse group of local and national radiology experts.

They also assess cases for incorrect interpretations, underreporting of serious medical conditions, incorrect differential diagnoses, and other violations of the standard of care. Their comprehensive analysis of the imaging and imaging reports strengthens our ability to build a compelling case on your behalf.

- Failure to diagnose breast cancer on a mammogram
- Failure to diagnose lung cancer on a chest x-ray
- Failure to diagnose adrenal cancer, liver cancer, prostate cancer, or colon cancer on imaging studies, such as a CT scan or during colonoscopy studies
- Failure to diagnose a brain tumor on a CT or MRI of the head or brain
- Failure to diagnose bone cancer on MRI scans or x-ray studies

- Failure to diagnose spinal cord injuries that could be caused by a hematoma, abscess, spinal cord stroke, or other disease process on CT or MRI studies

- Communication errors such as failure to ensure timely communication of information on scans to the treating physician
- Inadequate supervision or training: Radiologists who are not adequately supervised or lack the necessary training may make errors that could have been prevented. For instance, if a radiologist-in-training is allowed to independently interpret complex scans without appropriate oversight, it could lead to misdiagnosis or missed findings.
- Equipment-related errors: Radiologists rely on various imaging equipment, and if there are equipment malfunctions or errors in calibration, it can lead to incorrect diagnoses. For example, if an MRI machine is not properly calibrated, resulting in distorted images and inaccurate interpretations.
