I have had a total of 5 CT scans and only upon my last scan did I learn about the super high level of radiation. 2007 abdomen, 2009 Chest, 2009 Abdomen, 2009 Pelvis, and 2016 of the entire spine. Totaled up the is some serious exposure not counting the numerous X-rays too. All the data is showing an elevated chance of cancer but the data seems so skewed so I don't know to worry or not. Super worried right now and there are only a few of the same reports rehashed on the net. One Dr. says there is no connection and others say it's a 1 in 800 chance. Does anyone know if the spacing in between the scans matters? Reports say employees in certain fields are allowed exposure to 50 mSv per year! Do you have the same cell damage with one large dose as you do with the same dose over a period of time? Haven't slept in days so any help is much appreciated.
