Are we too reliant on Medical Imaging?

Imaging is used every day in medical healthcare, and the likelihood is that if you go to hospital that you will receive an X-ray, ultrasound or CT scan. With increasing reliance on complex imaging and the NHS now at breaking point, this lecture asks whether we have become too reliant on imaging and if so, how that manifests in today’s healthcare. This lecture assesses the potential advantages and disadvantages of such a system and what the potential solutions might be.
