Only if the doses of radiation are extremely high.  Here is a copy of an article from the FDA dated Feb 2010.  http://www.nytimes.com/2010/02/10/health/policy/10radiation.html  I guess some hospitals have been using CT and MRI machines that were not calibrated properly and have caused that problem.  Hope this helps.
