The Kreitchman positron emission tomography center at Columbia University has admitted that it engaged in unsafe practices by injecting impure radiotracer drugs into patients suffering from mental illness and other brain disorders. The admission comes from Dr. David I. Hirsch, vice-president for research at the university. The University did not make public these findings but rather only confirmed them after being approached by the press, who were reportedly tipped off by university insiders. The FDA has threatened legal action if patient safety is not improved immediately.
