The Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch (HSIB) has launched a full investigation into a case where a patient’s chest x-ray, showing a possible lung cancer, was not acted upon. 

The focus of the investigation will be on reviewing processes for communication and follow-up of unexpected significant radiological findings and identifying opportunities to reduce the risk of findings not being acted upon.
