Error Reducing Strategies

  • Haris Chrysikopoulos


This chapter addresses ways to block errors and biases, with the emphasis placed on the individual imaging professional, not on the system. I present a maze of checklists, questions, and filters to stop errors and biases “on their tracks.” This chapter is the most “dense” in terms of knowledge and information and displays a fresh way of thinking about errors and biases. Following the proposed algorithms is cumbersome and time consuming at first, but continuous practice leads to a safer navigation through the diagnostic dilemmas of everyday practice. So keep your eyes on the “prize”: improved outcomes for the patients, an overall decrease in the cost of health care, and a healthy sense of pride for us.
