� 1 This is an appeal and cross-appeal from an order which granted in part and denied in part appellant Joseph A. Corrado’s motion for post-trial relief. In its order the trial court granted a new trial as to appellee/cross-appellant Thomas Jefferson University Hospital (the “Hospital”), and denied a new trial and a request to remove non-suit made by Corrado as to appellees Herbert E. Cohn, M.D. and John R. Cohn, M.D. For the reasons that follow, we affirm.

Facts and Procedure

� 2 In this medical malpractice case Corrado alleged that the appellee doctors failed to timely diagnose his wife Joanne K. Corrado’s recurrence of lung cancer. Mrs. Corrado was initially diagnosed with lung cancer in April 1992. At that time she was scheduled by Dr. Giancarlo Barolat for a cervical fusion when he detected a problem with her chest x-ray. She was referred to Dr. John Cohn, a pulmonologist who referred her to Dr. Herbert Cohn, a thoracic surgeon, for surgery. Following a lung lobectomy in May of 1992, Mrs. Corrado continued her follow-up care with Dr. John Cohn and Dr. Herbert Cohn. For the next two years Mrs. Corrado suffered from a persistent cough. Numerous diagnostic tests were performed on Mrs. Corrado to detect the presence of cancer. However, according to her treating physicians, the tests were negative. In particular, in May 1993, a CT scan was performed on Mrs. Corrado at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. The CT scan was interpreted by Dr. Alfred Kurtz, a Hospital radiologist. Dr. Kurtz’s report indicated no cancer cells were present. In September 1993, Dr. Barolat and Dr. Joseph M. Cotler performed a cervical fusion on Mrs. Corrado. Subsequently, malignant cells were detected during a bronchoscopy performed by Dr. John Cohn in April 1994. Soon thereafter Mrs. Corrado sought a second opinion from Dr. Luther Brady. Dr. Brady reviewed the results of Mrs. Corrado’s past diagnostic tests, and concluded that the May 1993 CT scan showed a recurrence of cancer.
