COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY DOES NOT CAUSE CANCER

Not long ago I published an article about the use of computed tomography (CT) to scan chest organs in patients with suspected COVID-19. The article resonated with the audience while CT imaging was positively acknowledged both in Moscow and New York. Some readers, being also regular health care consumers, expressed concern about the safety of imaging studies in the article titled: “Computed tomography causes cancer”. Prof. Sergey Morozov, CEO of Moscow Center of Diagnostics & Telemedicine explained to Stanislav Samburskiy when CT can actually be harmful.
