El Centro Regional Medical Center is claiming that they were defrauded by an unnamed company.  The company was responsible for digitizing El Centro Regional's x-rays, but never returned the digitized version.  The process should have been completed by the end of July.  The original x-rays were most likely taken and destroyed to extract silver.

UPDATE (05/18/2013): The information on the records was as recent as February 2011.  El Centro Regional Medical Center learned of the issue on March 22, 2013.  Patients were notified on May 13.
