Medico-Legal Radiology book cover

Medico-Legal Radiology

This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. Radiologists are sued for all sorts of reasons - but particularly when diagnoses are missed - and in compensation cases their reports can be critical in determining the outcome. Medico-Legal Radiology describes over 100 cases from the author’s personal experience as an expert witness, and makes suggestions for reducing risk and tailoring report-writing to the legal environment.

Audience
Practising radiologists; trainee radiologists
