Two more California hospitals where patients were exposed to CT scan radiation overdoses say the scanners were programmed according to manufacturer specifications.
Officials at Los Angeles County-University of Southern California Medical Center and Bakersfield Memorial Hospital say they followed protocols detailed by Toshiba, manufacturer of the scanners.
There were two patient radiation overdoses at County-USC and 16 at the Bakersfield hospital.
Toshiba says in a statement Monday that it cannot comment because of a U.S. Food and Drug Administration investigation.
The discovery of the problem involving hundreds of patients led the FDA to issue an alert to hospitals nationwide to check scanner settings.
