John Langhenry and Melissa Gordon successfully defended a radiologist who was accused of failing to diagnose a hilar mass in 40-year-old male with no history of smoking in an x-ray taken in follow-up to an earlier diagnosis of pneumonia, for which a follow-up study should have been ordered. Several years later, the plaintiff was diagnosed with lung cancer caused by a mass in the hilar region, which ultimately led to his death. The defense argued that the radiologist properly interpreted the chest x-ray and, that there was no mass present on the x-ray and, as a result, no follow-up was required. Plaintiff sought over $10 million in damages.
