From the Glendale News-Press:

GLENDALE — Ten stroke patients were overexposed to radiation during CT scans at Glendale Adventist Medical Center this year, hospital officials said Monday.

The patients received three- to four-times the normal dose of radiation during a triple-imaging brain exam using a General Electric-manufactured CT scan machine, hospital officials said.
