Getting zapped to death

Cardiology diagnostic procedures account for 40% of patient radiology exposure from X-rays, MRIs and CT scans. The stunning average for one cardiology patient is the equivalent to 50 chest X-rays per person per year. Now cardiologists are being urged to reduce radiation exposure. Will it work? Believe it or not, some of the highly educated cardiologists don’t even know what the side effects of the over-ordered radiological scans are, like cancers that appear decades down the line. CT scans, percutaneous coronary intervention, cardiac electrophysiology and nuclear cardiology deliver doses of radiation equivalent to 750 chest X-rays in one zap. This multiplies though, as there is usually more than one procedure given per patient admission.

This problem goes in hand with our rising cancer rates.
