Misdiagnosis can occur based on an incorrect reading of an image study or biopsy. Sometimes follow-up test can confirm the presence of absence of a condition, like cancer, and result in the patient receiving improper treatment.
However, sometimes a misdiagnosis occurs and an individual undergoes extensive medical treatment that is not necessary. Perhaps worse, a poorly interpreted study can result in the delay or failure to diagnose a serious medical condition, allowing the disease to progress to a terminal stage.
