Risk of CT-induced cancer minimal compared to risk of dying from disease

While I try to minimize additional scans and other sources of radiation, this study puts the relative risks into perspective: most die from the cancer being detected and monitored by CT-scans, not CT-scan induced cancers.

And good use of numbers (in terms of absolute rather than percentages) to illustrate the comparative risks.
