A week after a woman died because a tumour near her heart wasn't noticed, the Trillium Health Partners now say 11 patients experienced some sort of "health trouble" because of problems with one radiologist’s work.
Stressing 99 per cent of the over 3,500 CT scans and mammograms they looked at had no major issues, Trillium Health Centres say the patients experienced what they call a "clinically significant event."
The radiologist had what they call 'a performance issue."
The patients were treated at the Mississauga Hospital and Queensway Health Centre.
In a statement, the chief of staff of the facilities says the hospital is now implementing a formal peer review program.
In a statement of her own, Health Minister Deb Matthews welcomes the move, underlining the need for quality of diagnostic imaging.
The radiologist no longer works there.
