A 38-year-old member asked:
Can indirect exposure to radiations from an x-ray cause any harm to cardiac patients who have had multiple angioplasties?

Probably not: People who have multiple angioplasties are no more injured by indirect exposure to xray than other people without heart disease. The degree of harm will depend on how much exposure to xray the individual has had.
