Do you go through medical procedures without paying attention to the risks involved from continued radiation exposure? It’s worth paying close attention to the amount of radiation you receive from CT scans (computed tomography) and from radiation exposure during atrial fibrillation procedures such as catheter ablation. Every time you are exposed to radiation, it increases your chance of developing cancer. Your doctor should consider this before you undergo your next procedure. If necessary, remind him or her.
