Avoiding overdiagnosis of mild brain injuries

Overdiagnosis is a concern for many Pennsylvania doctors, and it is more common occurrence for some conditions than others. Overdiagnosis refers to diagnosis at a disease stage so early that treatment may be harmful to the patient. This differs from a false positive, which is a false result indicating a disease that is not really present. Overdiagnosis is a concern now that imaging can lead to a greater understanding of what is going on inside a person's body than ever before.

Reducing medical malpractice

Pennsylvania residents may benefit from learning more about the facts concerning medical malpractice in the United States. Over 85,000 medical malpractice cases and 1 million medical injuries are reported every year. Generally speaking, hospital administrators view any report of a medical injury as a potential malpractice lawsuit. During 2014, there were around 7,000 deaths from medication errors and about 12,000 died from unnecessary surgeries.
