RESUMEN

Errors in image interpretation are inevitable and generally multifactorial. They can be due to the radiologist's failure to interpret the findings correctly (including cognitive causes, perceptual errors, or ambiguity in reporting) or to problems related with the system (technical problems in image acquisition, incorrect clinical information, excessive workload, or inadequate working conditions).

It is the radiologist's responsibility to know why errors occur and how to detect them to prevent them from occurring again. This article focuses on the problem of errors in diagnosing oncologic patients, both at the time of diagnosis and during follow-up as well as in the study of the response to treatment with new molecular therapies.

To reduce possible errors, radiologists should ensure a systematic reading and an assessment of the oncologic response over time in the clinical context of the patient; they also need to have and apply knowledge of the new specific criteria for the response of each tumor type in the management of the patient.
