Radiation is cumulative. Even the radiation you may have gotten from the shoe-fitting fluoroscope is still with you. 15,000 people die every year from cancers caused by radiation from CT scans. And children who had a CT scan had a 24% higher risk for developing cancer, with a 16% additional risk for each additional scan. Children who had one CT scan before age 5 had a 35% higher risk for cancer.
