There is very little radiation in those i wouldnt really worry about them. The human body can take up to 100msv an year before cancer is evident and an ct scan is only about 10msv at most so do the math. Granted if your not sick i would look more towards ultrasound instead maybe an mri if your insurance company would pay for it. And if i was healthy maybe one every 5 years or so for an ct scan. They say it takes roughly 25 to 30 ct scans to cause cancer. I just dont like it when people get bent out of shape with having 1 or 2 its not going to cause problems.
