The number of cancers caused by radiation from CT scans cannot be calculated because hospitals do not reveal information on the doses they use, experts warn

 Hospitals should be forced to reveal information about the radiation doses patients are exposed to during CT scans so the number of cancers caused by the tests can be calculated, experts said in a major report.

It is thought that for every 2,000 CT scans carried out on children, one will develop cancer at some point in their lives as a result of the radiation they were exposed to.

Around 100,000 people under the age of 22 are thought to undergo computed tomography scans, which use multiple X-rays to build an image of the inside of the body, in Britain each year.

The number of children undergoing CT scans has doubled every ten years since the 1990s and it is thought around 5m CT scans in total are conducted in Britain.

The scans give patients a small dose of radiation as opposed to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound scans which are radiation-free.
