BackgroundThe purpose of this study was to estimate the cumulative radiation dose from computed tomography (CT) scans and upper gastrointestinal fluoroscopic exams in the post-bariatric-surgery population and correlate these values with current concepts of potential radiation-induced cancer risk.MethodsA retrospective study of 100 roux-en-y gastric bypass (RYGB) patients and 100 gastric band patients was performed. The cumulative estimated radiation doses from CT scans and fluoroscopic studies… Expand
