Review of CT Scans continues

A review of almost 2400 CT Scans has found, what Island Health calls, a 15 per cent descrepancy rate.
Of those, 25 patients required follow up care and those people are being contacted.
However, Island Health is contacting all the patients who had a CT Scan that was a part of the review, to inform them that their CT Scan was reviewed, and no discrepancies were found.
Back in April, Island Health announced a review of 529 CT scans that had been done by a radiologist who worked as a locum for Island Health at various times between January 2013 and February 2016.

As a precautionary step, Island Health expanded the review to include all the other CT scans performed by the radiologist that included mammograms and a sampling of x-rays and ultrasound reports.

The diagnostic imaging tests were done at hospitals and health care centres located in Campbell River, Nanaimo, Ladysmith, Oceanside, Port Alberni, Port Alice, Port McNeil, Port Hardy, Comox and Duncan, between January 2013 and February 22, 2016.
The review of the 383 mammograms and a sampling of ultrasounds and x-rays is not yet complete.
