An article in the February 2013 issue of the journal Radiology, which is published by the Radiology Society of North America, concludes that the most common general cause of medical malpractice suits filed against radiologists is error in diagnosis and, within that general category, missed diagnosis of breast cancer was the most frequent cause.  This is followed by error in diagnosis of nonvertebral and spinal fractures.  The study considered 8,401 radiologists in 47 states.

When it comes to breast cancer, timely and early detection is everything.  If you believe that you or a loved one has been the victim of missed or delayed diagnosis of breast cancer, or any other medical condition, contact the medical malpractice attorneys at Stark & Stark for a free consultation.
