The suit is on behalf of all individuals who received a CT brain perfusion scan at Cedars Sinai Medical Center between February 2008 and August 2009, and anyone who received such a scan that utilized CT machines manufactured by GE Healthcare, Inc. and GE Healthcare Technologies at any medical facility during the two-year period preceding the suit.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration had announced on October 8 that in an 18-month period, 206 patients at a "particular facility" had received radiation doses about eight times the expected level. In some cases, the FDA said, the excessive dose resulted in hair loss and erythema. The facility had notified all the patients who received the overexposure. Shortly thereafter, the Los Angeles Times reported that Cedars-Sinai was the medical center in question.
