A team of class action attorneys and personal injury lawyers has launched an investigation into claims of patients who had brain perfusion CT scans and believe they received excessive radiation from the brain perfusion CT scan.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") issued an alert regarding CT scan machines manufactured by General Electric ("GE") and Toshiba that were used to perform brain perfusion scans (i.e., CT scans used by doctors to quickly diagnose patients suspected of having strokes by measuring blood flow to the brain) in hospitals across the country.
Symptoms and side effects from high doses of radiation from Computed Tomography scans, CT scans, or CAT scans may include: hair loss in an odd or circular band around the head, nausea, memory loss, long-term risk of brain cancer or tumors, genetic and tissue damage, weight loss, vomiting, confusion or fogginess, and headaches.
If you or a loved one had a CT scan and believe you may have suffered serious injuries as a result of CT scan radiation overdose, including hair loss, headaches, memory loss, confusion, or other side effects or symptoms, you may be entitled to compensation.**
**If you believe you received excessive radiation from a CT scan, we urge you to promptly consult your doctor or physician for an evaluation.
