There are three main types of consequences that can result from radiology errors, including:
- Physical injury,
- Emotional damage, and
- Financial damage.
Let's take a closer look at each of these consequences.
#1 - Physical Injury
Physical injury is the most obvious consequence of radiology errors. When diagnostic errors are made, patients can be subjected to unnecessary and invasive procedures. In some cases, these procedures can cause serious physical harm or even death.
#2 - Emotional Damage
Emotional damage is another common consequence of radiology errors. Patients who receive incorrect diagnoses may experience anxiety, depression, and feelings of betrayal. They may also lose faith in the medical profession as a whole.
#3 - Financial Damage
Finally, radiology errors can also lead to financial damage. When patients receive incorrect diagnoses, they may incur unnecessary medical bills. They may also miss out on work and earnings as a result of their condition. In some cases, patients may even be forced to declare bankruptcy.
