of drivers of quality radiology

Types of Errors

The origins of radiology misdiagnosis are diverse, ranging from issues with image quality to differences in interpretation between radiology providers. 9

Types of Errors

Technical Quality

The strength and resolution of older imaging devices vary widely.

In the lower quality image, individual nerve roots and organ tissue are difficult to see.

Interpretive Errors

Errors in interpretation can send patients down the wrong path.

Failure to describe the muscle atrophy accompanying this rotator cuff tear represents a missed chance to flag that the patient may be a poor candidate for surgery and unlikely to recover well.

Protocol Differences

Imaging center protocols often prioritize speed over coverage.



When MRI sections are widely spaced, interpretation is more difficult and radiologists can miss important information.
