In brief: CT scans

Some radiology departments have integrated a low-dose ct protocol for patients undergoing repeat ct scans for kidney stone follow up.
This will reduce the cumulative lifetime dose.

In brief: Hopefully nothing

There is a risk of developing cancer as a direct effect of radiation from a ct scan.
The chances of this happening increase as the cumulative radiation from the scans increases.
