Radiologists Misjudge Risk Of Being Sued For Medical Malpractice
Radiologists who work in breast imaging estimate their chances of being sued as four times higher than the actual number of lawsuits, reports the American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS), the nation’s oldest radiology society.
The University of Washington School of Public Health and Community Medicine in Seattle, WA, released the results of studies conducted in 2002 and 2006. The new study appears in the February 2009 issue of the American Journal of Roentgenology.
