Detection Of Radiology Errors
Perceptual errors and cognitive (interpretive) errors can occur when a physician or radiologist interprets and radiological image. Missed or delayed diagnoses often lead to patient harm and missed opportunities for treatment. Since medical imaging is a major contributor to the overall diagnostic process, it is also a major potential source of diagnostic error. Radiology errors can result in a failure to detect fractures in bones, failure to diagnose breast cancer or other diseases and failure to diagnose internal injuries. Due to the large amount of radiology errors, some law firms have attorneys that specialize radiology malpractice. Attorneys frequently use NDI’s radiology overread services.

Definition and Explanation of Radiology Overreads
An overread, also spelled or over-read or over read, is not a primary interpretation of an “inside study”. Overread studies are secondary radiology interpretations and reports provided by a specialized radiologist, usually at an “outside facility” upon request from a requesting physician or third party administrator. Radiology overreads are normally requested to confirm a prior study diagnosis that was initially provided by the initial radiologist or physician. In some overread studies, a radiologist will simply review the study and provide an interpretation for incidental findings.
