Neurosurgeons, who specialize in the surgical treatment of diseases and injuries affecting the nervous system, are frequently called upon to consult and testify as expert witnesses in medical malpractice cases. Neurosurgeons may speak to the standard of care for cases stemming from misdiagnosis of brain tumors, mishaps in neurosurgical procedures, or strokes requiring surgical intervention.

Radiology expert witnesses are trained to use medical imaging to diagnose pathology that cannot be confirmed with physical exam alone. Selective subspecialties of radiologists, such as Interventional Radiologists, treat diseases as well. Radiology experts perform and evaluate x-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine, positron emission tomography (PET), fusion imaging, and ultrasounds.
