This chapter reviews a new “theory of error,” which is a way of classifying errors based on three principal types of error causes. Mechanisms and solutions are proposed for each of these major error types. The strategies for error reduction that we discuss include those aimed at systems factors, those aimed at individual and cognitive factors, and those aimed at overcoming the flaws that are inherent to the basic neurobiological makeup of human beings and that predispose us to making certain types of error in this setting. We conclude by outlining a “roadmap” for reducing error in radiology in the future.
