Class action filed over MRI scans for research

A class action lawsuit in Canada claims MRI scans on members of the Pictou Landing First Nation were used without their consent, CTVNews reported.

The claim, filed in Nova Scotia Supreme Court in June 2020 and certified as a class action suit on February 7, alleges the chief and 60 band members were subjected to additional "secret" scans of their livers without consent, according to the report. The complaint revolves around their agreement to participate in a research project led by the Canadian Alliance for Healthy Hearts and Minds at QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax, the station reported.

The lawsuit names Dalhousie University radiologists Robert Miller and Sharon Clarke as defendants, according to CTVNews.
