    Yes, they can. CT scans in particular deliver a high dose of radiation.

    To be honest ,you should lower your contact with sophificated equipment ,because this medical machine will emit rays that potentially harm your health,the more you come into contact with this ,the more likely you are to get sick ,

    I've had about 65 medical x rays and treatments over the last 20 years. So far, so good, and the cancers didn't come back either.

    No.  Same as every other childish question like this that you constantly post anonymously due to the embarrassing level of idiocy it takes to post something like this.

    It depends on how often you get it. 

    You’re more likely to get cancer from sunbathing everyday during the summer than you are from getting x-rays unless you have a tech who keeps pressing the button in which case, you’ll fry from the inside. 

    You’re only allowed to have so many pictures taken during a certain period.

    You can measure x ray imagery in bananas 

    Bananas are mildy radioactive 

    You get very  small doses of radiation nearly every day

    No, the radiation from x-rays is insignificant
