Radiologists accused of reading mammograms on improper equipment

Tools

St. Peter's Hospital in Helena, Mont., has accused a radiology group that formerly provided services to the hospital of reading 3,000 mammograms on incorrect equipment in 2008, reports the Billings Gazette. According to an attorney for Montana Interventional and Diagnostic Radiology Specialists, however, no discrepancies were found when the mammograms were reread. The attorney said the charge is an attempt to damage the reputation of the doctors, who in turn have filed a lawsuit against the hospital for abusing its monopoly power by denying the group credentials to practice in the hospital. Article
