Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) officials on Wednesday sealed the only X-ray machine at St Mary’s Hospital and two at Landour Community Hospital after it failed to meet the safety norms. Two warnings have also been issued to LCH and one to Sai Clinic.

Brijesh Kumar Singh, scientific officer of Radiological Safety Division, said, “At St Mary’s, the X-ray machine didn’t meet the safety regulations and we had to seal a fixed X-ray and a dental X-ray machine at LCH. SIAM and mobile X-ray machine at LCH have been warned. Sai Clinic has a license but they can’t compromise on radiation safety so they have been given 30 days to rectify it.” – TOI
