Radiologists specialise in the detection of disease through the use of a variety of investigative techniques. Their work can be vital in finding an accurate and early diagnosis – improving the prospects for treatment – and is fundamental to the management of cancer care. They also play an important role in identifying sources of disease and reducing the possible risks of further spread.

Radiology is a discipline within the field of medicine which uses specialised imaging equipment to produce high quality images of the body. By interpreting these images, a radiologist can identify and diagnose a range of injuries and disease from simple fractures, to complex cancers. As qualified medical doctors, a radiologist will have begun their studies at medical school and specialised in the administration and interpretation of a variety of imaging techniques including ultrasound, X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) scans, and fluoroscopy.
Throughout their career, a radiology expert witness will have worked on multidisciplinary teams where their specialist knowledge is invaluable to the doctors and surgeons in charge of the patient’s care. Each radiology expert witness will have chosen to specialise in either diagnostic radiology or interventional radiology; some radiology expert witnesses will have exceptional experience and knowledge in both. Unsurprisingly, diagnostic radiology involves determining what is wrong with the patient by using specific imaging techniques. A radiology expert witness whose professional experience was led by interventional radiology will have assisted on image-guided pin-hole surgery for procedures concerning aneurysms, haemorrhages, and tendon injuries for example.
A radiologist will be involved in the treatment journey of a great number of patients as their expertise in imaging is a crucial and decisive stage. It is therefore only natural that many medico legal cases require the instruction of a radiology expert witness. Most frequent are cases of medical malpractice or negligence which has put the patient in danger of potentially harmful radiation. Cases of misdiagnosis and missed diagnosis may also result in a solicitor looking to appoint a radiology expert witness.
Since radiology cover such a vast scope of disease and injury diagnosis and treatment, a radiologist expert witness may have specialised further into particular areas of medicine, for example; cardiac, paediatrics, or musculoskeletal. Therefore, it is essential that when a solicitor looks to appoint a radiology expert witness in their case, they find one with experience that is directly relevant to their case. In doing so they may afford greater weight to their case and gain greater direction from the assessment and evaluation of the radiology expert witness.
