In a medical malpractice action brought under the Federal Tort Claims Act, district court judgment is affirmed where: 1) the court did not abuse its decision in allowing certain expert testimony as there was no evidence that plaintiff was unduly prejudiced by an unannounced review of x-rays by the expert; and 2) the court did not err in its evaluation of witness credibility and in crediting the witness' opinions as to the propriety of the care that plaintiff received.
