Where is the real-life data that shows an increased risk of malignancy with the radiation received from this form of intermittent flouroscopy. There is no data in the last 120 years that shows this, except for computational models. All that such articles do is to continue to spread the "meme" about the hazards of radiation related to malignancy that have yet to be proven for the radiation doses mentioned in this article.
This should have been highlighted as well. Why have the reviewers and editors passively accepted all this?Competing Interests: None declared.
