Cancer health check-ups under fire

The health inspectorate IGZ has launched a campaign against companies offering full medical check-ups, including body scans, the Financieele Dagblad reports this morning. Ten companies have been warned that offering certain sorts of medical diagnosis need to have proper permits, the IGZ told the paper.

The IGZ campaign is focused on companies offering check-ups for cancer using CT and MRI scanners.
