This case takes place in New Jersey and involves a female patient who presented to the ER in with abdominal pain. The ER ordered a CT, gave the patient various narcotic painkillers, and discharged him the next morning. The scan revealed a mass at the top of her liver. Her primary doctor saw the radiologist’s report and suggested a second CT be performed at the time. This was not done, nor was the patient notified of the mass or the risks involved. Some months later, she presented to his primary physician with pain in her side, and a CT scan was performed which revealed the mass had grown significantly since the last scan had been performed. The patient underwent surgery to remove the mass, and pathology identified the mass as cancerous. It is alleged that the patient’s chances of survival were severely diminished by the delayed treatment she received.
