I have had so so many and after this last month I am super worried about the radiation exposure I have every time these doctors just order me these cat scans like there candy. I have had so many and now I am scared
I would be inclined not to compare a tanning bed to a CT machine. The tanning bed will eventually cause skin cancer but a CT machine radiates between 40 and 400 times the x-ray dosage of a full chest x-ray. I quizzed the doctor about x-ray radiation exposure from these machines and he said: "~1 in 1400 will eventually result in Lymphoma", a case where benefits are greater than the risk.
Don't be scared.
