YORKTON, Sask. - The Saskatchewan radiologist whose work has sparked a review of 70,000 exams says he's the subject of a "modern-day lynching" by the group that regulates doctors in the province.
At a news conference in Yorkton, Sask., Dr. Darius Tsatsi claimed the Saskatchewan College of Physicians and Surgeons has a bias against him.
Tsatsi says he's a competent doctor, but his reputation has been damaged since the college said in May that there are concerns about his interpretation of images.
Tsatsi, who is originally from South Africa, argues that he has been forced to repeatedly write exams even after passing them and he believes he's the only foreign-trained specialist who has been targeted in such a way.
Tsatsi says he took the college to court in March 2009 over the way he was being treated and not long after that the college went public with its concerns.
The review of the Tsatsi's X-rays, CT scans, mammography and ultrasound tests is expected to take months to complete.
