Abstract

There are numerous misconceptions about serving as a medical malpractice expert witness. By maintaining an objective perspective based in the unbiased interpretation of the images provided (for both sides of the conflict), one can best serve society as a whole. Most cases for which a neuroradiology expert is recruited are the following: 1) not with the radiologist as a defendant, 2) resolved without court testimony, and 3) short-lived if frivolous. One can learn much about medicine, our nonradiology colleagues, and the litigation process by participating as an expert witness.
