    FDA Clears GE and Toshiba for CT Overexposure

    Health Imaging & IT | Clint vanSonnenberg

    The FDA cleared GE Healthcare and Toshiba America Medical Systems of any blame for the overexposure of hundreds of patients to CT-induced radiation resulting from brain perfusion scans. The FDA’s announcement followed an investigation into whether GE and Toshiba CT scanners provided appropriate protocols for safe usage and whether either manufacturer had modified any of the six hospitals’ protocols to cause the overexposure. The FDA found no violations of laws or regulations by either company.
