CT Scans

In speaking casually with a non-radiology specialized physician, I heard anecdotal comments about high numbers of CT scans on someone in a short period of time being a risk for future development of cancer. As the radiation ranges for a CT scan are much higher than most ambient living conditions, it struck me as a useful biological reference point for how we think about people affected by radiation at levels far below disaster workers but still elevated considerably above normal.

Does anyone have good contact to science or medicine experts who would be able to offer insights on research about CT scans or Xrays otherwise?

It would be great for us to get a different angle on understanding radiation exposure risk.
