Website That Calculates Your Cancer Risk From Radiological Tests
In the last few weeks, there's been multiple media reports on the increased risk of cancer with common radiological tests due to radiation exposure, however minimal it may be.
Due to this concern, a website called "X-Ray Risk.com" was developed that calculates your increased cancer risk based on type of test, age, and gender.
For example, a CT Neck (a common CT test ordered by ENTs) on a 35 year-old male increases cancer risk by 0.046%. A chest x-ray? Only 0.001%.
