An ex-radiology technologist accused of filing false mammography results has pleaded guilty to 10 charges of reckless conduct and a charge of computer forgery, as reported by ABC News on April 16.
Rachael Michelle Rapraeger, a 33-year-old from Macon, Ga., is said to have entered almost 1,300 negative mammogram results at Perry Hospital from Jan. 22, 2009 to April 1, 2010. A radiologist had not reviewed the results, and prosecutors said that 10 of them were actually positive.
Rapraeger’s attorney, Floyd Buford, said that she was overwhelmed and entered negative results when she was behind on work. She was sentenced to six months in a state probation detention center.
