Supreme Court, Sullivan County

The plaintiff alleged failure by radiologist to detect abnormalities and testicular cyst in a scrotal sonogram of 4-year-old patient. A testicular cyst was diagnosed two years later, when it was found to have destroyed the testicle. The condition required removal of the testicle. The plaintiff claimed that earlier detection and treatment of the cyst would have avoided loss of the testicle.

Result : Defense verdict. (The parent's individual claims and claims for alleged medical expenses and special damages were dismissed on summary judgment motion prior to trial.)
Defense Attorney : For the radiologist: Robert Irving Miller.
