The techs are taking a beating on this, but its the docs and the 
physicists who screwed up.   Of course we are talking about diagnosing a 
stroke in progress so the pressure to use the technique even in doubtful 
situations must be overwhelming.  Still, not understanding the output 
parameters of the new equipment is unforgivable.
