After undergoing a routine mammogram screening on March 17, 2011, a 59-year-old woman was told that everything looked normal, and was not recommended additional mammogram reviews or an ultrasound. However, later reviews of the mammogram showed that the radiologist failed to identify an area of asymmetric density as potentially malignant. The woman later died of breast cancer, which had spread to her central nervous system. If she had been further evaluated soon after her mammogram, she would have been diagnosed with a triple negative tumor, a condition that had an 80% – 90% cure rate when promptly treated with a lumpectomy, radiation and chemotherapy. Jeffrey A. Milman of Hodes Milman represented the woman’s surviving family; mediation resulted in a settlement of $350,000.
