MRI Failings Lead To Cauda Equina Syndrome

MRI Failings Lead To Cauda Equina SyndromeMRI scans play a vital role in the diagnosis of cauda equina syndrome but several hurdles can delay this key procedure. A failure with regards to the MRI may lead to a catastrophic outcome for the patient and warrant a claim for compensation.

Significance of an MRI in cauda equina syndrome

If a patient is developing cauda equina syndrome, it is imperative that they undergo decompression surgery before their symptoms deteriorate and function and sensation in the lower body is lost. When a patient presents with the early symptoms of cauda equina syndrome, an MRI scan is needed to confirm that compressed cauda equina nerves are, indeed, the cause of their problems. The undertaking and reporting of an MRI is, therefore, a matter of emergency as surgery is usually considered to be necessary as soon as possible and within 24 to 48 hours of diagnosis.

MRI Failings

Between a referral by a GP or A&E practitioner for an MRI scan and the receipt by the surgeon of an accurate scan report, a number of problems may arise which result in the patient losing vital time.

Medical Negligence

A delay in surgery for cauda equina syndrome can mean the difference between recovery of function and a lifetime of distressing and debilitating urinary, mobility and bowel symptoms.

If you are suffering with the appalling long-term symptoms of cauda equina syndrome due to a failing by medical practitioners to deal with your MRI scan in a timely and accurate manner, you may be able ot make a claim for compensation.
