Failing to diagnose macular degeneration

North Carolina residents may be interested to learn that, according to a study, about 25 percent of age-related macular degeneration is missed by eye care professionals. Because this condition can result in a loss of eyesight, failing to diagnose AMD can have serious implications for older adults who are at risk for developing it.

Revealing private health info could be considered malpractice

Some New Jersey residents may be interested in learning about whether it constitutes malpractice to disclose information about a person's HIV status. Although medical errors are commonly understood to be forms of malpractice, not everyone is aware that revealing private information without consent can also be an act of misconduct. In general, patients enjoy a right to privacy concerning their medical information that doctors are legally required to respect.

Diagnosing soft tissue sarcomas

North Carolina doctors who believe that a patient could have a soft tissue sarcoma use a number of tools to make a diagnosis. They can also use tests to determine where the cancer is in the body and if it has spread to other areas. The type of diagnostic tests that are used depend on the person's signs and symptoms, medical condition and the results of earlier tests.
