Radiology is simply the word to describe any medical treatment where imaging is used to diagnose a case. The most common types are X-Rays and ultrasound. These methods allow medical professionals to get a view of your body that allows them to diagnose conditions such as broken bones or cancers.
These diagnosis methods are usually extremely accurate, however if negligence occurs, you could be left dealing with issues or illnesses that worsen your condition.
If you or a loved one has suffered as a result of a professional’s misinterpretation of a scan and it has led you to suffer as a result, you may be entitled to claim. If you’d like to speak with us, feel free to contact us if you have a question about your matter. We are more than happy to answer your queries and assist you with your matter should you choose to instruct us.

What is radiology?
If you have to go to hospital, you will often have some kind of scan to provide the doctors or nurses imagery. These will usually be interpreted by a specialist and include X-Rays, ultrasounds, computed tomography (CT scan), MRI scans etc.
Normally these scans are extremely good at highlighting diseases or issues within the human body, however, sometimes errors or negligence can occur, which means that a complication can go undetected. This could mean that there are delays in your treatment and that you suffer as a result – this is where you’d be able to make a medical negligence claim.
For example, a delay in the detection of a simple fracture may mean you require more extensive treatment. Often there is no reason for error.
