Ultrasound refers to an imaging process that is used to create internal images of the human body via the use of sound waves, making ultrasound expert witnesses an important part of certain types of medical lawsuits. Ultrasound expert consulting may provide valuable insight into such areas as radiology, bioengineering, advanced surgical technologies, radiology, obstetrics and gynecology, fetal screening, and other related issues within the medical field, each of which may become involved with potential litigation.
Ultrasound expert witnesses may be experienced with various types of medical imaging, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computerized axial tomography (CATSCAN), which are each utilized in radiology treatment. Ultrasound experts also have backgrounds working with various types of medical equipment and medical devices that have been designed to assist with the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions and injuries. Due to the common use of ultrasound, expert witnesses may be asked to provide an expert opinion in the event that the ultrasound process failed to detect a medical issue because of a product defect, misuse of equipment, or other such problem, which may be grounds for a lawsuit resulting from medical malpractice.
Ultrasound expert witnesses are also often experienced with reproduction issues, as the technology is commonly utilized for women’s health during the childbirth process as a means of monitoring the child’s health and detecting such issues as high risk pregnancy or congenital disorders.
