MedRisk’s white paper on preventing diagnostic imaging errors

Error rates in diagnostic imaging can be as high as 30 percent. Often a busy primary care physician will order a CT when an MRI is needed or request an exam of the wrong body part or site. Sometimes imaging centers run tests on the wrong patient, a mistake that occurs just by calling a patient out of the waiting room by the first name only.

MedRisk – known for making sure that injured workers receive the right treatment from the right provider at the right time – identifies typical errors and recommends ways to avoid them in this whitepaper.
