The use of radiological medical imaging such as X-rays and CT scans has become an important tool for diagnosis and treatment.

Experts explain that children are especially vulnerable to the risk of developing cancer from the imaging.
When applied to medicine, technology can be a blessing - or a curse. Under the principle of "first, do no harm," potential curses should be recognized so that proper precautions can be taken against medical malpractice.
