Radiologists use CAT scans, MRIs, and X-rays, ultrasounds, and sonograms to diagnose illness. Unless interpretation of these results is communicated effectively to the treating physician, appropriate treatment will not be given. Incorrect interpretation of the results also leads to misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis and death.
An appropriate rule of thumb might be: “when in doubt,” pursue further or more specific tests. Rather than dismissing an unusual or abnormal sign on a test result as a harmless matter, the abnormality should be definitely identified. Radiologists should never “drop the ball.”
Conditions that may be overlooked and continue to threaten patients, include:
In the case of mammography, for example, routine screenings are done. If there is any sign of cancer, a diagnostic/in-depth exam should be performed. Cancer will metastasize (grow and spread) if not treated.
