Elsevier Australia, 2007 - 201 páginas
This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. Radiologists are sued for all sorts of reasons - but particularly when diagnoses are missed - and in compensation cases their reports can be critical in determining the outcome. Medico-Legal Radiology describes over 100 cases from the author's personal experience as an expert witness, and makes suggestions for reducing risk and tailoring report-writing to the legal environment.

  • The legal issues in radiological practice and medical defence
  • The radiologist as a witness
  • How to write a legal opinion
  • How to write reports with possible litigation in mind
  • Detailed discussions of cases relating to each body system

within this book there is a section discussing the issue of Myodil See pages 119 to 122 within these pages of which I have just seen for the first time, Professor Hare has made certain remarks that needs to be not only challenged but corrected so those wishing to use such in any related legal matter in the future have before them 'the truth' and not that which is clearly written to support any defence in such future claim. My name is Derek Morrison and I was the plaintiff in the matter referred to in this section, and within many misleading statements made by the author which whilst I am sure future Defence Lawyers would like to sight, such will not be written here, however, if any plaintiff legal representative wish to make contact please do so for such would be advantageous to your claim. Contact details are ctensw@gmail.com.
