Multidetector row computed tomography (MDCT) represents the technique of choice for the majority of pathologies today and is responsible for the majority of diagnoses. However, despite the low number of studies dedicated to errors in MDCT, CT reporting seems especially prone to generating errors and errors are an inevitable part of MDCT practice. Most of these arise during image interpretation but, differently from other radiological techniques, the awareness of radiologists regarding technical CT aspects and pathologies substantially contribute in generating errors, in particular because CT technology expands rapidly and radiologists do not routinely receive specific and appropriate training for its use and because CT examinations are not the same for each patient and each pathology and the choice of the most appropriate CT examination (including the dose exposure to the patient) presumes a very large awareness from radiologists. This review is aimed at increasing awareness regarding the type of errors in MDCT and in particular to also highlight technical and procedural errors.
