EU-direktiv vil standse brugen af MR scannere

Dette kan få alvorlige følger for diagnosticering og behandling af cancer patienter.

Barcelona, Spain: Implementation of the Physical Agents (Electromagnetic Fields) Directive 2004/40/EC in all Member States could effectively halt the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), an important tool in cancer diagnosis, treatment, and research, a scientist told a press conference at the European Cancer Conference (ECCO 14) today (Monday September 24). The Directive is due to be implemented across Europe by April 2008.

The Directive was drafted by DG Employment, with the aim of minimising workers’ exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF). Currently eight million MRI patient examinations per year are carried out in Europe.

Slovakia has already implemented the directive, on the grounds that it was based on the assumption that the limits which it sets would have no effect. This would appear to mean that it is now illegal to carry out MRI scanning in the country.”

Gad vide hvad Lars Lykke siger til det. Det er imorgen hans garantiordninger træder i kraft. Man forstår bedre og bedre, de ikke vil have os til at stemme om EU.
