X-rays, MRIs and CAT scans are commonly used medical diagnostic tools. Doctors and surgeons must be able to read and interpret the results from those tests correctly. X-ray technicians have a major responsibility to ensure that patients are kept safe from excess radiation, while also getting the X-rays required by physicians.
If you think a doctor or surgeon made a mistake in diagnosing or treating you because of a radiology error, talk to the medical malpractice trial lawyers at Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum, P.C.

Injuries And Radiology Errors
We are ready to help you recover full and fair compensation for injuries relating to all types of radiology errors, including:
- Delayed X-ray diagnosis, failure to diagnose cancer
- Misread CAT scans and MRI test results
- Communication breakdowns between health care providers
- Diagnostic specialist errors
When doctors and other medical professionals breach an acceptable standard of care, they should be held accountable for the serious injuries and harm that arise from those errors.
In many cases, to properly diagnose illnesses and injuries and to set out a treatment plan for those health conditions, it is necessary to run diagnostic tests such as X-rays, MRIs and CAT scans. When a physician fails to order the proper tests or misreads them, it can cause the misdiagnosis of broken bones, cardiac infections, illnesses like pneumonia and other serious and life-threatening conditions.
At the New York City law firm of Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum, P.C., our team of experienced lawyers helps people injured by misdiagnosis and delayed treatment fight when the misreading of X-rays and other diagnostic testing led to their injuries.
