"Although it is certainly prudent to minimize exposure to radiation, much of the recent literature on the subject is alarmist and largely unwarranted, and there is a danger of dissuading people from having CT scans when they may provide crucial information about their illness and in many cases may be life-saving." ~PATRICK J. BRYAN~Radiologist, San Antonio Community Hospital.

Let us hope that facts over myths will succeed at some point, Dr. Bryan.

As a radiologist You pretty much has to believe in what You do for a living.
Many medical professionals have a different opinion.

I only had one mamogram in my life, I had a problem at the time.

Most women I met and talked to found a lump themself 3-6 month after a test.
But this is about so much more.
PS I am in the 70s.

Dear Victoria, I am glad that some honest person returned your wallet. There are a still few honest folks out there. Sadly, our media just cashes in on the bad stuff and not the good .
