Edge of film error

Dr Daniel J Bell and Dr Henry Knipe et al.

Edge of film errors, also known as corner of film errors, are a classical perceptual error in radiology where a pertinent finding, whether incidental or not, is at the margin or edge of the image. It is now used for all modalities, in both a literal sense, i.e. actually at the edge of the image, or more metaphorically, perhaps just the last slice in an image series or only seen on a single MRI localizer image.
