Interesting that the medicos are saying this about doses less than 0.01 Gy.
Also interesting that a routine diagnostic exam is listed at 0.01 Gy

While research has not conclusively found a concrete
       link between radiation dose and cancer risk, Suit said
       that one thing is clear -- radiation exposure, except
       at low dose levels (0.01 Gy for a routine diagnostic
       x-ray exam), is known to heighten cancer risk.
