I am a journalist looking to interview a patient in the U.S. who had their MRI misread in the last year or so, and suffered medical consequences as a result. If you would like to share your story, I would like to hear from you. Tell me what your symptoms were, what the doctor/technician told you initially about your MRI, and how the mistake was discovered. Thanks!
