Modern technology has given us X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, ultrasounds, mammograms and other diagnostic tests that make it possible to diagnose diseases that were once undetectable. The technology, however, must be utilized by highly trained, responsible medical professionals. When radiologists and lab technicians are negligent in their duties, the results can be tragic.
At the Savage Law Firm, our lawyers stand up for the rights of people who have suffered due to radiology errors and other forms of medical malpractice. Our attorneys have a proven record of success obtaining favorable results for clients throughout Portland and Seattle.

Doctors rely upon radiology test results to detect tumors, blood clots and signs of other serious medical conditions. These tests allow doctors to provide timely and accurate diagnoses and, in turn, effective treatment to their patients. Misreading a radiology lab result can result in the delayed diagnosis of a medical condition or harmful, unnecessary treatment in the case of a false positive.
Radiology errors can take many forms, including:
- Improper reading of tests
- Failure in communication between the lab and the treating physician
- Doctors failing to follow up on test results
Our attorneys are knowledgeable in radiology standard practices. We consult with radiologists and other medical experts who help us prepare and present cases for our clients. We thoroughly investigate all pertinent information, including medical records and diagnostic tests to identify liable parties and seek fair and just compensation for our clients.
