This retrospective analysis, co-authored by CRICO data experts, was published in Radiology on April 2, 2024. CRICO’s national Candello database of medical malpractice cases was used to identify cases involving telemedicine that closed between January 2010 and March 2022.

The findings indicated that teleradiology medical malpractice cases more frequently involved the death of the patient and had higher median indemnity payment amounts compared with radiology malpractice cases not involving teleradiology. Also, teleradiology cases were more likely to involve issues with communication.
