Will you be afraid of a CT scan?

Do you believe it raises the risk of tumor in the long term?

    Today, CT scans are SAFE. The xrays of today are much safer than they were years ago too.

    I had a few x-rays back in the 60s and 70s....much more dangerous than a CT.

    Nope, I've had at least two before.  They are no worse than getting X-Rayed.

    There is no reason why it would.  The radiation level is plenty low enough.  Long term risks come with long term exposure, not a small single exposure.
