Unnecessary X-Rays Taken in Sweden?

Published måndag 18 januari 2010 kl 11.26

Swedish radiation authorities claim that 20% of the hospital x-rays taken in this Nordic nation are unnecessary - and are potentially increasing the patient's risks of getting cancer.

Some doctors here feel this is exaggerated.

Meanwhile, a number of Swedish medical experts have appealed in a debate article that 95,000 workers in the European Union die each year from work-related cancer.

They maintain that the greatest risks are being run by tobacco smokers exposed to asbestos at the work place and then moving on to other risk-filled jobs.
