Radiology is one of the most frequent specialties involved in delayed and missed diagnosis medical liability claims, and these diagnosis-related failures can lead to treatment delays and contribute to patient harm. Reducing interpretation errors is complicated because it requires radiologists to acknowledge susceptibility to biases and to change thought processes. This article aims to increase radiologist awareness of diagnostic errors and what causes them to improve diagnostic performance and reduce patient harm.
