Jackson Radiology Malpractice Attorney

Radiology Malpractice & Negligence in Mississippi

Radiology refers to the use of imaging technology, such as x-rays, to diagnose and treat a wide range of medical conditions and diseases. Like other types of medical specialists, radiologists are required to abide by an accepted standard of care. This means that they have a duty to correctly diagnose patients in a timely manner, provide necessary treatment, and properly uphold all applicable medical standards. When they fail to do these things, patients can suffer misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, delayed treatment, worsened conditions, and even death.

Radiology malpractice, or the failure to uphold the accepted standard of care in conducting radiology treatments, is a form of medical malpractice. At ‘MAGGIO LAW, we have extensive experience in this area of law and have helped countless clients successfully recover the fair compensation they were owed. Based in Jackson, our radiology malpractice attorneys proudly represent individuals and families throughout Mississippi, providing compassionate legal counsel, personal attention, and aggressive advocacy throughout the entire process.

What Is Radiology?

Radiology is a branch of medicine that involves various imaging tools, equipment, and technology used to diagnose and treat a variety of diseases. Medical professionals who specialize in this area are known as radiologists.

Some examples of diagnostic tools and treatments that fall under the radiology umbrella include:

  • X-rays
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Computerized tomography (CT) scans
  • Mammograms
  • Breast MRIs
  • Ultrasounds
  • Bone scans
  • Thyroid scans
  • Positron emission tomography (PET)

When used properly, this technology allows radiologists and other specialists to accurately diagnose medical conditions, pinpoint problems within the body, and recommend appropriate treatment. However, when radiologists are negligent, patients can suffer significant health consequences.

Examples of Radiology Malpractice

Because radiology is most commonly used to diagnose illnesses and medical conditions, most radiology malpractice claims involve diagnostic errors, such as missed diagnoses, delayed diagnoses, and incorrect diagnoses.

Specifically, some of the most common examples of radiology malpractice in the U.S. include:

  • Cancer misdiagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose cancer
  • Diagnostic errors involving other medical conditions
  • Misreading and misanalysis of test results
  • Failure to obtain informed consent
  • Procedural injuries, such as MRI burns
  • Failure to communicate test results
  • Failure to identify or diagnose cooccurring conditions
  • Improper or inadequate follow-up care
  • Failure to perform additional testing

To prove that a radiologist was negligent, it is not enough to simply prove that you suffered a poor outcome after undergoing an imaging test or series of tests. Rather, you must prove that the radiologist (or another healthcare provider) who treated you failed to uphold the accepted standard of care.
