Alberta health officials have ordered a review of an additional 1,600 reports from an Edmonton pathologist after 29 patients were mistakenly told they didn't have prostate cancer or had a less aggressive form of the disease. The 29 cases were among 159 prostate biopsy slides, taken between July and September, that were reviewed by a pathologist working at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton. CBC News story.
