MDCT of the abdomen: Common misdiagnoses at a busy academic center

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


OBJECTIVE. At our busy academic institution, we have noticed repeated examples of certain misdiagnoses, even by experienced abdominal imagers, both in our own department and at outside institutions. This is likely related to many factors. Discussed here are a variety of common diagnostic errors on body CT examinations. CONCLUSION. For each diagnostic error, we explore the reasons for the misdiagnosis and provide experience-based advice to avoid these mistakes.
