Long waits for Medical imaging

Waits for scan results 'too long'
Detailed report in BBC HEALTH NEWS

"Waits for tests have come downWaits for the results of X-rays and other scans in England are often too long, a report finds. But two out of three doctors and nurses said they often did not get results when needed, and a half said the delays affected patient decisions daily."

Average wait for a non-urgent CT scan:
Seven weeks in 2001
Just over five weeks in 2005

Average wait for an MRI scan:
21 weeks in 2001
14 weeks in 2005

Seems like Teleradiology Providers is on th right track...
