My mum has cancer of the esophagus. She has had chemotherapy and radiotherapy and was admitted to hospital due to breathlesness. She had a CT scan and was told that the cancer had spread to her lungs. We are now told that the CT scan has been misinterpreted and the scars on her lungs are due to the radiotherapy. The support of the nurses has been excellent but still no apology from the radiotherapist who misintepreted the scan or the doctor who delivered the news in an abrupt and inappropriate manner.
"incorrect interpretation of CT scan"
