A Deerfield man is accused of forging credentials and incorrectly injecting a woman during a CT scan procedure last year at an imaging center in suburban Hoffman Estates.

Omayr Niazi, 41, has been charged with aggravated battery, forgery and wire fraud, Hoffman Estates police said in a statement.

Niazi injected a woman with contrast solution, causing her to have a negative reaction, and performed a CT scan without training or certification on Nov. 23, 2020 at Hoffman Imaging and Medical Center at 2500 W. Higgins Rd., police said. The woman’s scan was inconclusive.

The woman reported the man on Jan. 23 and, after an investigation, detectives found that Niazi had forged credentials and submitted claims to insurance companies without being authorized, police said.
