'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.
