Hi all,

Fourth year medical student hear-- just wanted to know what you guys have to say about the REALITY of malpractice for radiologists in private practice-- I seem to be hearing contrasting opinions from the different radiologists/ rads residents that I have spoken with regarding this issue in private practice-- some have told me that malpractice suits only happen to "bad radiologists" and some attendings have said that the whole issue is entirely overblown. However, whenver I research this issue on the web is seems as if it is a HUGE issue-- Is this just an issue that is "making a mountain out of a molehill"? Any thoughts would be much appreciated. Thanks.
