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.
