Lawsuit against ProScan dismissed

By staff writers

November 22, 2019 -- A lawsuit that charged imaging services provider ProScan Imaging of Cincinnati with filing reimbursement claims for scans that were never read by radiologists has been dismissed.

In a November 14 letter to colleagues, ProScan CEO Dr. Stephen Pomeranz and President Mike O'Brien wrote that the company had been informed by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) that the individuals who filed suit against the company had requested to have the litigation dismissed at the end of October. The move occurred just over a month after the DOJ decided to not intervene in the case, the letter noted.

The lawsuit was filed in October 2017 by a former radiologic technologist at the company and Dr. Peter Rothschild, a California radiologist. The litigation charged that ProScan allegedly used physician assistants to "ghost read" MRI exams.

ProScan had aggressively pushed back against the charges, asserting that they were not true and that the litigation was filed by a competitor. ProScan has 38 radiologists reading MRI scans, according to news coverage of the lawsuit, and had not had a malpractice judgment in 30 years of operation, according to the story.
