No: Xrays do not "contaminate" the items that are xrayed. You do get a small amount of radiation exposure from getting the xray, but things xrayed do not become radioactive.

Depends: "radiation" is not just one thing or one entity. There are different types of radiation with different routes of exposure, and health effects depend on several things such as the type of radiation, the strength of the radiation, the route of exposure, the proximity to the radiation source, the health status of the person exposed, etc. See http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/acute_radiation_syndrome.

Depends on scanner: This will vary with the scanner, somewhat. I found an assessment/estimate of this with a google search and i really can't do better than this. You would need to get several pieces of information off the scanner and would need to account for the technique- single or multiple passes, etc. See: http://answers.Google.Com/answers/threadview/id/742075.Html.
