The less the better in most cases, but sometimes the benefits outweigh the risks. If your friends are worried about the radiation levels, they should ask if any of the tests can wait a while. Some may be too important to hold off, but if it's not an emergency, scheduling the tests several weeks apart would be better. This gives the body time to get rid of the radiation.
