Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this article is to provide all students of radiology, from novices to experts, a framework for understanding common errors in reasoning. CONCLUSION: By familiarizing ourselves with common fallacies, we can take steps to reduce the probability that we will commit such errors or fail to recognize and respond appropriately to them when they occur.
