Maybe emotional distress. Malpractice, though, would primarily depend on records and results. Medical treatment is like many other things. The results of any exams dont speak for themselves, they need to be interpreted. If something can be interpreted multiple ways, you may not have a malpractice claim.

Since you have two conflicting reports, my recommendation is to get a third "tie-breaker" evaluation. The. Meet with a few local attorneys to discuss the details of your case privately. After that, they should be able to advise whether they believe there is a case there.
