What can \i do if I went to the emergency room and the X-ray tech came and took me to take 3 CT scans which the doctor did not order?

The doctor did not order them and I tried to tell the tech that but she would not listen.The doctor admitted he had not ordered them. They billed my insurance for them and my insurance paid it. I feel like I was exposed to a lot of radiation needlessly. I have a thyroid condition and it is not good.

Without an injury tha tis quantifiable, there is no viable lawsuit I am afraid.  You must have an injury that was proxiately caused buy the professional negligence of hte medical personnel.
