GUEST,Musket BS: Scan discrimination (44) RE: BS: Scan discrimination 23 Mar 16


A sludgy pancreas if 'tha must know.

We have legislation around unnecessary imaging, under ionising and radiation criteria. Even a request for an X Ray by a doctor that turned out to be not needed in order to diagnose has to be classed as an incident and reported to the regulator. What it does do is cut down on exposure to potential issues (great, he stopped smoking years ago but four chest X Rays in short succession is as dangerous as smoking heavily for a month.)

This is why I and others spend time working out age range for screening. You make clinical decisions and get effectively overruled by politicians who don't want to see it as rationing...   Sorry, just getting it off my chest. 😡
