      Radiation & your child

      Researchers say, radiation from CT scans could put your child at slight risk for developing cancer.

      A new study of children under the age of 15 found those who had two or three scans are at a three times greater risk for brain cancer.

      Five to ten scans triple the risk for leukemia.

      Although the risk is still very low -- researchers suggest to only have your child scanned if absolutely necessary.
