Learning Objectives: Describe those false negative cases due to interpretive error (failures in perception and analysis, and acceptance of substandard-quality images), not due to interpretive error (no findings, subthreshold findings, and probably benign findings), as well as deficiencies in communicating results that contribute to delayed diagnosis. Understand the medicolegal consequences of these situations.
