MRI scan restrictions put on hold

A European law which would have restricted the use of life-saving MRI scanners was put on hold after complaints from British scientists and MPs that potential health risks from the machines were exaggerated.

A House of Commons Committee slammed the law in a report a year ago expressing "alarm" that the Commission was relying on 10-year old risk assessment information in such a fast-moving high-tech area as MRI scanners.

And a recent report submitted to Brussels by UK scientists also helped win a four-year postponement while EU experts reconsider the plan.
