PIC conducts only Thallium scan test of Nawaz due to security concerns

ISLAMABAD: The Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) administration conducted only Thallium scan test of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif due to security concerns and pressures from certain quarters, official informed media.

The premier was taken to the Punjab Institute of Cardiology on Jan 22 for angiography on the recommendation of Jinnah Hospital’s Head of Medicine Department Professor Tanveerul Islam.

The doctors have expressed their dissatisfaction over the Thallium scan test report of the former premier.

The hospital official have disclosed that one of the arteries of Nawaz has narrowed down which has negatively affected blood supply to the lower body.

The official have said that had Nawaz gone through angiography, he would have to stay at the hospital for some hours.
