Study: CT Scans May Be Linked to Cancer, Deaths

Ad Feedback

Radiation from CT scans may be linked to cancer and more deaths, according to studies published in the Archives of Internal Medicine.

CT scans are a special type of x-ray called a computed tomography. Experts say those scans have a higher radiation dose than conventional x-rays and expose people to four times as much radiation than previously thought.

It is estimated that scans done in 2007 will cause 29,000 deaths and kill nearly 15,000 Americans.
