Does this bother anyone but me? My Mom (breast cancer survivor) received 4 CT-scans in the past 6 months due to a minor whiplash injury.
Research just released from Berrington de Gonzalez of the National Cancer Institute found that of the 72 million CT scans performed in the United States in 2007, 29,000 cases will result in cancer.
The authors project the most common radiation exposure-related cancers will be lung, colon and leukemia. Not surprising, whole-body PET scans deliver an even larger radiation dosage. Wouldn’t mind so much if they’d just tell us beforehand….thoughts?
