Systems failings in the radiology department at University Hospital Kerry in Kerry, Ireland, going back to 2014 were identified in recent legal proceedings, reports The Irish Times.

“Substantial damages” were paid to a woman whose breast cancer was missed and her diagnosis delayed because of errors in the radiology department in University Hospital Kerry, it has emerged.

The misdiagnosis took place two years before the current review, which got under way in October. The case was settled in September.
