Hillary Clinton Is Out Of Touch With Radiologists

During a recent campaign swing through Indiana, Hillary Clinton had this to say about radiology (yes, radiology):
Next she shared the alarming news that American radiologists are losing jobs because X-rays are being sent electronically to India. But the outsourcing of radiology is not precisely what Mrs. Clinton made it out to be; according to Frank Levy, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, there is only one company in India that reads American images. The overseas radiologists who read American images are generally American citizens themselves, said Mr. Levy, because doctors who have not passed American boards cannot be insured against malpractice.
Oh, Hillary. Stick to the politics, okay? And fine, while this is a threat in the future I suppose, she should be more careful before making such claims since it's easily falsifiable.
