posted on WED, APR 12 2017 by Center for Diagnostic Imaging

Radiation is impossible to avoid. We are all exposed to a certain amount of background radiation in day-to-day life. But research shows that today people are exposed to 7 times more radiation than 30 years ago. That’s due, in part, to an increase in the number of people getting CT scans.
