Injury Causality Analysis Reports

Radiologists are the medical specialty specifically trained, licensed and Board Certified to evaluate medical images. Our evidence based medicine approach allows our radiologists to accurately analyze the information provided for review and to render in the context of applicable evidence based medicine guidelines a professional Age of Injury report and Injury Causality Analysis.

Injury Causality Analysis

The Injury Causality Analysis report represents a methodical analytical process of review and analysis of the submitted diagnostic image set provided along with the corresponding diagnostic report that was completed by the primary reading radiologist at the time of the clinical event. Additionally the analysis incorporates submitted associated pertinent clinical data, clinical information, clinical findings, prior imaging exams and prior imaging reports, which are relevant to the specific injury in relation to a specified time frame.

As with the Age of Injury Report, this analysis identifies specific objective signs of acute (recent) injury versus signs of degenerative changes that are evidence of chronic (long standing) conditions. This methodology and analysis may be limited by acute re-injury intensifying or exacerbating chronic long-standing conditions or older injuries. All analysis are dependent upon the quality and quantity of the information provided, however with the addition of pertinent clinical medical records, imaging records/reports, clinical data, clinical information and clinical findings relevant to the specific injury, this more in-depth analysis allows for evaluation of causality.

Utilizing the objective findings evident on the diagnostic images and the relevant specific circumstances of the specific case, our radiologists are able to provide an expert independent professional medical opinion with the required high degree of clinical certainty as to whether the findings demonstrated are likely related or unrelated to a specific event. This is the standard for most legal and insurance situations.
