1. No. It takes a LOT more exposure. Do you know you get the same exposure from flying on a plane?
2. No. The machines are calibrated, and checked
3. Ah - see!

If you google "radiation calculator" you can find a way to tell how much you have been exposed too and what your risk is and set your mind at ease.

I have had many, many CT scans - and X-rays etc. - I am fine!
