    In order to have a viable case against the radiologist you would need to show they departed from accepted practice in their interpretation of the MRI/MRA films. Additionally, you would need to show that the departure caused you some injury. Your question does not provide enough information to give a meaningful response. What happened as a result of the alleged improper reading by the radiologist(s)? Did you have unnecessary surgery?
