There is much data posted on the internet, such as Kodak website about
dose to film, etc., from both carry-on as well as checked luggage.
Typically, there is negligible dose from a carry-on x-ray. Checked
luggage, depending on where you are, domestic or international, can
sometimes observe dose as high as 2.5 mSv., depending on what is packed
in the bag, etc.
