Frequent dental X-rays linked to most common brain tumorApril 10, 2012 in Cancer
People who received frequent dental x-rays in the past have an increased risk of
developing the most commonly diagnosed primary brain tumor in the United States.
That is the finding of a study published early online in Cancer, a peer-reviewed
journal of the American Cancer Society. Although dental x-rays are necessary in
many cases, these findings suggest that moderate use of this form of imaging may
be of benefit to some patients.
