Teri Scotto-Lavino Obtains a Summary Judgment Win on Behalf of a Radiologist and a Radiological Facility 

Senior counsel, Teri Scotto-Lavino, obtained summary judgment in a medical malpractice action.  Plaintiffs claimed that the radiologist, interpreting the ultrasound and doppler performed at the radiological facility, failed to diagnose placental previa and placental abruption causing the infant to be born prematurely and blind.

The Court agreed with Ms. Scotto-Lavino that the ultrasound and doppler performed at the radiological facility and interpreted by the radiologist were performed properly and in a timely fashion. The Court held that the studies were interpreted correctly by the radiologist abiding by good and accepted standards of the medical community and were not the cause of any harm to the infant plaintiff.
