Radiology report question ... do these types of mistakes happen? UPDATE

Hi everyone - I was hoping you can help me with something.

Yesterday, we met with mom's oncologist who went over her CT scanr results/reports (contrast-enhanced chest, abdomen and pelvis). The news was GREAT - God is good. According to the scans, mom's in the clear. I noticed as the onc was going over the report for the abdoment/pelvis ... she did a double take on the impressions section and thought that was a weird reaction.

So I asked for a copy and read it on my own after I came home from celebrating with my mom.

Here's the confusion:

Report, in detail, indicates that all abdominal organs are unremarkable and normal. There is no evidence of disease in the liver (where she originaly had a met).

Under impressions, the report states the following:

" There is no definitiave evidence of recurrence on this exam with an anastomotic line within the pelvis demonstrating no thickening or associated soft tissue mass. There is evidence of metastatic disease within the abdomen and pelvis on this exam."

The second part of the above statement is what's throwing me for a loop. According to the doc and the detailed portion of the report, she is in the clear. Why is the impression in contradiction then?

I called the radiology dept. where the scan was done and the "manager" immediately saw that same glaring contradiction. She said an addendum would have to be published to the report by the same radiologist who read the scans and wrote the report.

Has this ever happened to anyone else??? I was really hoping to get one or two care-free days out of this week with the scan and chemo being over and behind us ... but it looks like, that won't be possible until I hear back from teh friggin radiology department.

Any thoughts? experiences? your feedback would be appeciated.

Thanks for your support.

    Hopefully the radiologist meant
    There is NO evidence of metastatic disease within the abdomen and pelvis on this exam. Could just be a typo?

    I was thinking the same thing. These radiologists use voice-recogniton software for the most part and the error rate, I know, is very high with those. But for the love of God, read the darn thing before you sign off and share with the patient. We worry enough as is, don't need these confusing artifacts mixed in.

    hey there
    I'm thinking too, just a typo.
    But what I'm really curious about is the onc. Was she just going to let this slide??
    Seems she should have been the one to check on that- pronto.
    It just pains me everyday to see how much everyone has to micro-manage the high-salaried oncs.
    What a shame.
    Hope to see your follow-up, Jas. Thanks.

    It looks like a typo to me too, looks like the word "no" was left out. Let us know.

    Radiologist Reports
    Hi people: You have to check the reports, all of them, and look at them all together (if you've had several). I have gone through all of my scan reports (both CT scans and MRI scans) and caught several errors and omissions, some serious. For example, on several MRIs early on my peritoneum cancerous nodules showed up as gone so chemo was stopped when in fact they were still there, big as life. Thankfully,my surgeon ordered a CT to be done on me to fix my incisional hernia and yup, there they were, so more chemo. But what if he hadn't caught this omission???? As well, the details that were asked for were just not there like size, specific location, appearance, etc. I gave my oncologists spreadsheets summarizing the scans and highlighted the incorrect or confusing data! So, yes, it could be a typo (which in itself is heart breaking - aren't these things checked for that???????) but then again maybe not. Radiologists are human and make mistakes particularly when stressed, which means they should be checked and double-checked by someone!
    I'm venting but mistakes when you have cancer is terrifying.

    Hmmm, I go with Onc's Reading...
    Whenever I get a scan, and I've had many of them, I pay more attention to what my Oncologist says about the scan than to the piece of paper. Frankly, I don't even get a printout of it. Mainly because I'm not a radiologist so it's akin to me trying to read the fine print in a legal document. Hopefully your oncologist actually views the scans and doesn't just read the report.
    I would put a call into your Mom's Onc, explain what happened, and ask her to review the scan as well as the report. More than likely it's a typo but instead of having techs who aren't Oncs determine what they THINK is going on, I'd want to find out what actually IS going on.

    Radiology - Onc or...??

    Of the three oncologists I have had since 2006, none read the
    scans, x-rays, or sonograms. They all relied on the radiologist's
    reports for their data.

    Every surgeon I have had rejected the radiologist's reports,
    and insisted on reading the scans, x-ray, and sonograms, and
    compared them against the older versions.

    I would prefer to have someone who's career relies on the ability
    to read a road map, is the one that interprets where the town is.

    (just sayin')


    Best of health!

    Well, when my Rick has his
    Well, when my Rick had his initial colon surgery, the radiologist told us that there were several tumors on both sides of his liver and that he was inoperable. Then two hours later a surgeon looked at the scans and told us that Rick was indeed operable and had less tumors than we were told earlier. Rick subsequently had a liver resection four months later.

    And only last month my best friend was told by a radiologist that she had several breast tumors, most likely cancerous, but a recent biopsy revealed only fatty deposits. And I too was told several years ago that I had breast cancer, but no, that wasn't the case either, thank goodness.

    And if that isn't bad enough, it's now well known that a large number of radiologists cheat on their medical exams - check out this recent CNN article: http://www.cnn.com/2012/01/13/health/prescription-for-cheating/index.html

    broader problem
    This has ominous sounds for MCAT (premed school) and USMLE (dr licensing) tests that have similar tools. This and similar issues are a problem throughout our current "trained and certified" society. How do we measure scholarship, individual effort and professional knowledge amongst the our young? What happens as canned stuff largely replaces knowledge caught in the wild? How can we balance?

    surgeon's view
    Thanks John. An interesting possibility for an alternative CT consult, although my experience with radiologist and surgeons is a mixed affair.

    Wow!
    "Of the three oncologists I have had since 2006, none read the scans, x-rays, or sonograms.

    That probably explains a lot...What's the point of having an oncologist?
    I've had my Onc catch a few "mis-reads" over the years.

    Jas...
    I know you told me you were in the DFW area with me. I don't know which facility you are using for your care...but you might want to consider switching over to UTSW in Dallas...St.Paul's and Zale Lipschy are the top rated hospitals in the metroplex area.

    And Simmons Cancer Center has been upgraded this past year to NCI status, which is top-tier designation for cancer care. UTSW is now the MD Anderson of North Texas - make no mistake about it.

    I've got the top colorectal surgeon now in the metroplex as well....one of the top rated radiation oncologists there - and one of the top 3 cardiovascular/thoracic surgeons in our area as well.

    I'm steadily assembling my medical team and putting my entire care in the UTSW system. I've got an ENT there now....about to find an Internist...and a Dermatologist.

    And it's great to be under ONE ROOF. With their medical system online and coordinated, anywhere you go on the campus has your entire medical record, so any of your doctors can just pull up your records and scans and all have the same information.

    Priceless.

    Just the other day, I had a question for my lung guy...it's been 18 months since I came out from under his scalpel...but his good old PA was still there...I had a question on my recent CT scan and sent them an internal email to see if they could shed some light.

    Sure enough, she pulled up my scan and looked it over...and sent back a reply with my question - and just a couple of hours before my consult.

    I just love these guys!

    Just something to consider...

    BTW: I'm not a paid spokesperson or anything:) LOL! I just owe these people my life and I believe so strongly in them and the care that they have provided me.

    Thanks, everyone ...
    thanks for your feedback ... here's an update: I spoke with the director of the radiology department yesterday - she was apologetic and based on the detailed report agrees that it's most likely a typo; however, to be on the safe side, she'll have the same radiologist who issued the report review the scans again and write an addendum. Of course, nothing's easy in life and this guy apparently works on multiple campuses so we'll have to wait until Monday for him to get back to this campus and correct his work.

    As far as reviewing with the onc, mom's oncologist went through the report with us word by word but she didnt even acknowledge this mistake - it was only her reaction that prompted me to request a copy of the report. I agree with Phil that as a lay person, reading these reports and/or reviewing these scans can be somewhat harmful because what you don't understand CAN drive you crazy. I almost wish now that I hadn't requested this copy because everyone walked out of that office happy and relieved except for me. I am still in limbo until Monday.

    As to whether or not the oncologist reviews these scans, I can't say that I've ever seen her review anything other than the report in our presence. Not sure if she does so during their board meetings?

    Radiology, as a discipline, in general makes me very uncomfortable ... it's very based on the individual and less standardized. Two radiologists can look at the same film and arrive at very different conclusions; but I guess that can be true with other specialties as well.

    Craig - mom's being treated at Baylor Irving although her oncologist is affiliated with UTSW (she is an adjunct professor) and has an office at St. Paul. Her CRC surgeon was Cleveland clinic trained and is also a professor at UTSW.

    Her liver surgeon (although she hasn't had a liver resection) is the chief of surgery at Baylor Irving and was educated and trained at UTSW.

    As an alumni, I'm also very partial to UTSW and have complete faith in their academic and clinical knowledge. I would appreciate it if you would send me a PM with names of your docs at UTSW. Perhaps I can start assembling a second-line team just in case.

    Radiologists
    Hi: You might want to check out discussion threads at the Colon Club website. They're discussing the same things. I'm a trained image analyst (as a botanist - do vegetation not humans) and always always always have someone else, likely more than one person, check out my analyses and still I'd want to go and look at the thing in question (easier than opening up a body though!). Everyone makes mistakes or has differences in background and experience. My oncologist doesn't go through the reports with me in detail but I see him looking at the images in the main office at the cancer centre. Trouble is, most oncologists are chemist types and radiologists aren't medical doctors but surgeons look at our insides day after day after day. Worthwhile pondering. I have a team at the cancer centre comprised of an oncologist, a surgeon, a dietician, and an oncologist nurse. Which should be the way to go but ...

    I'll check out colon club ... I've been taking a break from that site but perhaps it's worth revisiting for more information on this topic.

    By the way, radiologists ARE medical doctors. I am not sure if that's different in Canada.

    Hi: Yes, many of them are but not all of them, here anyways. The radiology doctor signs off on the scan reports but usually (here) does not do the actual scan, well-trained technologists do. I think what I meant to say was that radiologists aren't surgeons and they aren't necessarily oncologists and wouldn't it be nice to have a team with all of them on it, all of them looking at one's scans!
    Thanks for correcting that.

    typo
    Hey Jasmin:

    I also think it was a typo and it meant "NO evidence" but regarding your question, yes these DO happen. In my Mom case even worse happened. She went for her first scan and it came out that she's clean, the reason for her stomach ache was said to be probably she ate something bad. Then she went home saying "oh okay". Two months passed by and the pain didn't go away, so she went to see another doctor this time and not the same one she went the first time. She got scheduled for a scan, and got the results back. The doctor told her that if she came two months ago she would have been probably operable and start chemotherapy, but it's too late now, just "go home and live as you can" as literally what the doctor said. That's how my Mom became diagnosed with cancer.
    Then when my Mom told me this, I was confused saying that cannot be. She was clean 2 months ago, why this doctor says if she came two months ago she would have been fine?? So, I took both of the scan results and biked to see this second doctor to explain to me why he said what he said, and what is really going on. He started analyzing the first scan and all of a sudden he looked at me and said "Well, I'm sorry to tell you. But on her first scan by the other doctor they FORGOT to use contrast dye, so hence nothing got detected." I was shocked, and was sooooooooooo upset that I stormed home. So, yes, these things do happen....whether it "just" a typo, or basically someone's life....it happens. And yes, my Mom did go home and lived as long as she could...3 months. Ever since this occasion I'm still today thinking of going and finding that first doctor and spit in his face and just tell him "thanks, you killed my Mom". I am still today very upset about this, and cannot believe it. And once I'll be an adult, I will for sure go and see this doctor and yelled his head off- doctor here, doctor there, I don't care!
    Anyway....all the best to your Mom!
    Please take care,
    - Sophie

    Radiology Mistakes
    Oh Sophie I'm am so sorry what happened to your mom. That is terrible. I, too, would be tempted, and would probably do it. It happened to a friend's husband, too. It just re-enforces to me that we have to be more vigilent when it comes to scan reports, blood reports, etc. People make mistakes and there don't seem to be many checks in the system. But it is difficult.

    Just about all my docs look at my scans:
    Even tho my onc schedules them, i usually call radiologist ASAP for quick rundown.When i meet with her and onc, they both go over scan itself with me. My lung doctor goes over the lung part and since i've started seeing a urologist, he too goes over the scan, as does surgeon, so i get five perspectives.....I suppose i could get disc of scans but they won't really mean anything to me; have photo of inside my bladder and now , a year plus later and i don't remember what i'm looking at...Do have written report of my last scan and it can get scary when you read it til it gets explained in words you understand. I'm surprised some of you have oncs who don't go over scans with you....steve

    UPDATE!!!
    Hi everyone - I hope you had a great weekend. Go GIANTS!!!

    I had promised you an update on mom's radiology report debacle ... just got the report addendum ... scans were reviewed by the radiologist again and the addendum states there is NO evidence metastatic disease witin the abdomen or pelvis on this exam.

    PRAISE GOD. I am so relieved ... everyone has been relishing in the good news since last week but I just needed this confirmation before I could really let loose :-)

    Great news for your mom. I hope that dr is more careful with the next report and proof reads it. I wish your mom and your family well. Lori

    Thank you :-)
    I'll be ON her case from here on out ... even more so that usual. I appreciate your well wishes and wish you and yours all the best.

    Thank you, Cheryl!
    I am so glad we've got this forum to support each other through this journey. I agree, we have to be more vigilent ... mistakes happen when docs deal with high volumes.
