Understanding the Importance of X-Rays and Ultrasounds

Both X-rays and ultrasounds are imaging tools that look at different parts of the body to determine irregularities or disease. X-rays are usually used for imaging on hard structures or hard tissues, while ultrasounds are typically used for soft tissues and structures. Both are crucial steps for determining whether additional measures must be taken to protect the health of you or your loved one. Common sites for x-rays include one's bones, lungs, and the digestive tract. Ultrasounds are used to view the liver, pancreas, gallbladder, heart, or breasts.

Failure to Address Unclear Screenings

X-rays and ultrasounds are crucial steps in diagnosing an illness or irregularity. In every case, x-ray technicians, doctors, and other medical personnel review the images to determine if anything is present that might be cause for concern. This process of interpretation is often where errors occur. In many cases, medical personnel look at x-rays and ultrasounds and do not notice the irregularities or attribute the condition as something less significant, failing to err on the side of caution. This often leads to harmful health consequences that could have been avoided. If you or your loved one has been injured by a misread imaging screen, contact Newland & Newland, LLP to determine your rights to relief.
