Pulm fibrosis: Yes it can cause pulmonary fibrosis, and high doses can eventually cause heart injury. There are no remedies. Getting a chest X-ray or a CT scan is not too dangerous unless you are pregnant. Radiation for cancers is controlled and the benefits outweigh risks. Lead shields protect the lungs when the target for X-ray or radiation is elsewhere on the body. Limit radiation exposure
