As specialists who are closely involved in the process of diagnosing patients’ conditions (often serious ones), radiologists have a comparatively high malpractice liability risk, and the top allegation in claims against them is that they have made an error in diagnosis. The diagnostic process can be affected by cognitive and systems errors. Researchers have identified strategies that can help reduce both cognitive and systems errors, and adopting some of their recommendations may help reduce risk for radiologists.
