QCNL in the News: “Yes We Scan,” But Should We?

February 12, 2018

In Newfoundland and Labrador, we do CT scans at a higher rate than anywhere else in Canada: about 219 per 1000 people, or 47% higher than the national average. Dr. Patrick Parfrey, QCNL/CWNL’s clinical director sat down with the CBC to discuss the risks these high scanning rates can pose for patients.

That interview is available on the CBC’s website, here.
