Eye lens radiation exposure and repeated head CT scans: A problem to keep in mind
European Journal of Radiology, 08/09/2012
Michel M et al. – A relatively high lens radiation dose was observed in children exposed to repeated CT–scans. Due to that exposure and despite the difficulties met when trying to reach patients’ families, a large scale epidemiological study should be performed in order to assess the risk of radiation–induced cataracts associated with repeated head CT.
