Abstract

In A department of radiology, we have three fields of radiodiagnosis, nuclear medicine and radiotherapy. We use various medical equipments for patient in clinical examination. It is the truth that every material in various forms breakes certainly. Though medical equipments usually seem to be safe, suddenly they may cause an accident during clinical examination and they may do patient an injury. As medical accidents, unexpected incidents, near miss of medical accidents and complaints from patient caused by inevitability and medical malpractice may happen in daily clinical examination, we must prevent and minimize medical accidents. We sent out questionaries to 13 hospitals to get accident cases caused during clinical examination. We study risk management for prevention of patient's injury. In this paper, we discuss risk cases due to mistake of receptionist, plain radiographic techniques, ward radiographic techniques, contrast radiographic techniques and angiography.
