Radiation Exposure
In 10/07, I had a CT scan of the kidneys. In 03/08, I had a CT scan of my chest to r/o PE. In 04/08 I had a thallium nuclear stress test. In 05/08, I had a 64 Multi-slice CTA of my coronary arteries. During this time frame I also had two regular chest x-rays. So, as you can see I ahve been expose to a lot of radiation inn the past 8 months. Most of this was done because I was having chest pain. Can you please give me some kind of idea of how much radiation I have exposed myself to and how bad that would be for developing cancer? I will not be undergoing any more x-rays or radiation exposure. Thank you.
