FDA Expands Investigation of CT Radiation Exposure Cases
FDA has expanded its investigation of possible radiation overdoses from CT brain scans to include two more California hospitals and one in Alabama. In October, FDA launched an investigation into 206 possible cases of radiation overdose at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. FDA said it is looking into at least 50 more possible cases at Cedars Sinai and the two other California hospitals, including Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank.
