ABSTRACT
The article reports on the failure of the government and professional regulatory bodies to create policies that will protect the people from the risk brought by the screening technology in Canada. According to the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, the lack of regulations allows the private medical clinics to sell medical imaging. This scheme can also result to false positive results and harm patients from radiation and cascading procedures.
