I really doubt non-artistic works are copyrighted as a general rule anywhere (. 
. . but I have been wrong before).

Now clearly being able to judge that X is a utilitarian work is the more normal 
problem with this argument and why it is seldom used. Diagnostic images are one 
of the few clear-cut situations.

And even if it is only the US, other countries would not recognize copyright on 
diagnostic images created in the US, which gives us at least the NASA situation.
