Nuclear Medicine (Cat Scans And Mris)

CAT (computer axial tomography) Scans and MRI's (magnetic resonance imaging) save thousands of lives each year by detecting problems in their earliest stages and in cases of emergency where the diagnosis could mean life or death to a patient. Such would be to scans to detect internal bleeding injuries, spinal cord and brain injuries. In this instance the danger comes from failure to read the scans appropriately thereby causing an illness or injury to progress unheeded. But of course, with all malpractice cases, any claim will depend upon the standard of care that could be reasonably expected. Contact an experienced attorney for more information or to help answer any questions you may have.
