Medical Legal News for Summer, 2013!

To Readers of this Blog-


Thanks for your many comments.  At trial and when reading deposition testimony of other doctors,

I note the problem of "common biases".  This can be the source of errors in the practice of medicine.

Here are important definitions that I teach medical students and resident trainees:


Anchoring Bias: Settling on a diagnosis too early in the workup.  This discounts future changes in patient condition that should change or at least question the diagnosis


Emotional Bias:  Subconscious positive or negative thinking about a patient or even their primary doctor that

adversely effects interpretations of images and any recommendations.


Satisfaction of Search Bias:  Stopping searching when one explanation is found that explains symptoms.

In my case as a radiologist, if I see a cyst on a mammogram/ultrasound, I cannot stop looking for another problem such as microcalcifications that could represent an unrelated cancer.



Have a great summer!


Dr. Bob
