 NHS Docs may Need to Use Zoo Equipment to Scan Obese Brits
The NHS may soon need to use zoo equipments to scan morbidly obese Brits, according to experts.

Many hospitals do not have equipments to suit obese people. A study revealed that only one in six hospitals had access to MRI or CAT scanners that could cater to patients weighing 35st.

The only option, especially in emergency cases, is to use scanners available in veterinary hospitals. Many hospitals in America have begun approaching zoos to use their equipments on obese patients.
