In brief: Radiation

to predict a risk percentage we would need a total dose of exposure.
We try to minimize radiation exposure as you know. There will be an increased risk but odds remain with the child. Try to be careful with future exposure as much as possible. Risk benefit of radiation studies always needs to be considered.
