Hospitals in Toronto, Mississauga reviewing thousands of CT scans, mammograms

TORONTO - A review of 3,500 CT scans and mammograms is being conducted at hospitals in Toronto and Mississauga for possible errors due to a "performance issue" with a radiologist. Trillium Health Partners says the tests were conducted between April 1, 2012 and March 31, 2013 at Mississauga Hospital and Queensway Health Centre. It says a performance issue with a radiologist who no longer works for the hospitals prompted the review, which will look into the accuracy of the test results.
