Radiation Overdose Leads To Medical Malpractice Lawsuit


A patient who received an overdose of radiation during a CT scan at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center has filed a lawsuit against the hospital and General Electric Healthcare, maker of the scanner.

The lawsuit claims negligence on the part of the hospital and the manufacturer in regards to performing the scans. The equipment error went undetected for 18 months and involved 206 patients who received eight times the normal dose of radiation.

In addition to negligence, the lawsuit alleges medical malpractice, product liability, and breach of warranty.
