Radiation is used by medicine to diagnose and treat some diseases. When used properly it can help to save lives. It requires skill and an understanding of the dangers to ensure that you are safe from harm. Unskilled technicians or faulty equipment can result in overexposure to radiation. Failing to monitor the amount of radiation a patient is receiving can lead to excessive exposure. When this happens, an Atlanta medical malpractice attorney from our firm should be consulted as soon as possible.
