I would like to start a discussion on airport body scanners. Having CML, and knowing that in the past, extreme radiation has led to CML, what is the opinion of this group on going through the airport scanners? Are the rads enough to worry about, twice in one week, once in a year? I am flying to NYC in May, and while I am not looking forward to the body patdown, is that the preferable choice? Should we avoid any optional radiation when possible?
Thanks to all for this great discussion place!
