'1 CT scan = 300 X rays': AIIMS chief warns of cancer risk, overuse amid Covid

AIIMS director Dr Randeep Guleria warned against CT scans in mild Covid cases. Guleria linked CT scan radiation to cancer risk. Guleria at a press conference said that CT scans and biomarkers are being misused and they can be harmful as well. "One CT scan is equivalent to 300 to 400 chest x-rays. According to data, repeated CT scans in younger age groups increase the risk of cancer in later life. Exposing yourself to radiation again and again may cause damage. So, there is no point in doing CT scan in mild Covid-19 if the oxygen saturation is normal," Guleria said. Watch the full video for more.
