Half of Spain's 15,000 X-ray systems are still unregistered, says the country's nuclear safety council, the CNS. Juan Manuel Kindelan, president of the CNS, estimates most of those which have escaped safety registration are in small clinics and health centres. The CNS encountered five cases of radioactive overdosage in medical X-ray workers in its report of the first half of 1995.
