ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the impact of incidental findings or incidentalomas by radiologists. It says that incidental findings can lead to unnecessary testing, expense, and pain for patients and direct radiologists into jeopardy for a lawsuit. Doctor Leonard Berlin notes that if there is reasonable conduct which is significantly abnormal in terms of standard of care should be mentioned. Meanwhile, a white paper regarding incidental findings on abdominal computed tomography (CT) is discussed.
