A new AHRQ-funded study of more than 11,500 safety reports found that 7 percent were related to diagnostic imaging. The study, published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology, found that more than half of the imaging-related safety reports, submitted in 2015 from a single medical center, came from the imaging procedure itself, but errors involving communication of results were more serious.
