New technology identifies DNA damage in patients undergoing CT scanning.

The use of medical imaging for heart disease has exploded in the past decade.  These tests expose patients to a nontrivial amount of low-dose radiation.  However, nobody really knows exactly what this low-dose radiation does to the patient.  Now, researchers from Stanford University have shown that cellular damage is detectable in patients after CT scanning.  The team state that the
