The article reports on diagnostic imaging which focuses on the study that relates to the significant increasing number of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scanners in Canada over the past 4 years except that there has been no increase in the number of medical imaging professionals. It notes a discussion on the specifics of the study by the Canadian Institute for Health Information. It points out the obligations of the British doctors to face mandatory annual competence tests that will assist them in terms of prescribing habits, diagnostic skills and personal problems.
