CAVEAT EMPTOR

A good article about the dangers of over-testing by Dr. Libby…the total body CT scan touted by some clinics is unlikely to detect hidden disease in healthy people..very high false positive rate..the reference to an INCIDENTALOMA goes back to at least the 1970s….http://consults.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/06/08/the-incidentaloma-problem-with-medical-scans/?partner=rss&emc=rss
