Failure to Advise Woman of Mammogram Results in $3 Million Settlement

Published September 17, 2009 by Scott Gottlieb, Injury Law Attorney

The family of a 47-year-old woman has accepted a $3 million settlement against University Diagnostic Medical Imaging and two Bronx doctors for not notifying her of her mammogram results. Her mammograms showed possible breast cancer.

The technician, who suspected breast cancer during the woman’s routine mammograms in 2001 and 2002, recommended an MRI and sent the results to her doctor, Dr. Karim. The results were never given to the patient and no follow up tests were conducted.

In 2004, when she found a lump in her breast, it was too late. The cancer had spread to both breasts and her liver. She died in March 2007.
