What's in a Scan?
Authors of a new study warn that private clinics selling high-tech services to screen healthy people for disease could be harming Canadians and placing an undue burden on the public health system.
The study, entitled What’s in a Scan? was published today by the Canadian Center for Policy Alternatives (www.policyalternatives.ca). The results of the study found that there are prevalent misconceptions about the safety and regulation of CT and PET screening technologies.
