Summary

The constant advances in diagnostic imaging have had an impact on the practice, attitudes, and moral values of all who participate in health care. Now in its fourth edition, the original Medicolegal Issues for Radiographers has been updated and retitled, broadening the scope of content to include issues essential to all diagnostic imaging professionals.

Medicolegal Issues for Diagnostic Imaging Professionals, Fourth Edition provides readers with a basic understanding of the important legal definitions, legal doctrines, malpractice and risk management information, ethics and patient rights relevant to the field of diagnostic imaging and the role of the imaging professional. It includes case histories in the form of vignettes that assist readers in applying the principles of law to real work situations. The vignettes can stimulate discussion, raise other related issues, and supply a broadened perspective on the various facets of the questions presented.

New in this Edition:

  • Expanded discussion on evidence
  • More detail on the ramifications of the Civil Rights Act of 1991
  • Updated information on licensure, certification, and credentialing

  • HIPPA
  • ARRT
  • Euthanasia
  • Humanistic Health Care
  • Teleradiology
  • Twelve years since its initial publication, this medical legal text remains a bestseller. By reviewing the materials in this seminal volume, imaging professionals, radiologists, and radiologic technologists stay abreast of important legal issues and are better able to avoid the scourge of a malpractice suit.
