Scanner figures

Dear Sir,

Countries from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development reported that Greece had 21.7 MRI scanners for every million persons, which equates to one scanner for every 46,000 persons.

Israel had 1.9 for every million, which equates to one scanner for every 526,315 persons.

Britain has 5.6 for every million, which equates to one scanner for every 178,571 persons.

The United States has 25.9 for every million, which equates to one scanner for every 38,610 persons.

These figures are for the year 2009.

ANTONY SIESE
