Misread CT Scan Leads to Extensive Surgical Intervention

Cancer Misdiagnosis Leads to Medical Malpractice Settlement

rlp-radiograph-chest-exam.jpg

Due to worsening chest symptoms, our client presented to the hospital where she underwent a CT scan of the chest. The study was interpreted by the doctor in question as an enlarged lymph node and was not further evaluated. Two years later, our client returned to the hospital for a CT scan of the chest, which showed a significant increase in size of the mass that was worrisome for a malignancy.

Our lawyers hired an expert who noted that the initial CT scan did not portray enlarged lymph nodes, but rather a mediastinal tumor. The doctor in question's failure to accurately characterize the mass led to a significant delay in diagnosis of the lesion and resulted in a more extensive surgical intervention. Rosen Louik & Perry settled this case for several hundred thousand dollars.
