Former Georgia technician falsified mammogram reports

— A former radiology technician who admitted falsifying nearly 1,300 mammogram reports at a Georgia hospital was sentenced to serve up to six months in a state detention center.

Authorities say 33-year-old Rachael Rapraeger used doctors' computer logins to enter negative mammogram results for patients at Perry Hospital for about 18 months from the end of 2008 through early 2010. Authorities say 10 of the mammograms were actually positive.

An investigator's report says she told police she had personal issues that caused her to stop caring about her job. That caused the mammogram files to pile up. Her lawyer said she filled out false reports to avoid having to do the paperwork necessary before the mammograms went to a radiologist.

Some of the women affected say Rapraeger's sentence was too light.
