Marci Faber was one of the three patients. She had gone to Evanston Hospital in Illinois seeking treatment for pain emanating from a nerve deep inside her head. Today, she is in a nursing home, nearly comatose, unable to speak, eat or walk, leaving her husband to care for their three young daughters.

(etc. – well worth reading about this common procedure gone awry in hospitals all over America to be aware of how this x-ray equipment must be set-up and used properly by hospitals and x-ray tech labs for patients to be safe when it is needed.)
