Over two years ago my eldest son was diagnosed with lymphoma. He had PET scans and CT scans. These started at the end of my last pregnancy and went on while my son was a newborn and infant. I do not remember him holding the baby, but he came home from scans and was around him. They never said this was dangerous or told him to stay away from anyone for any length of time. I would like to know whether my baby has been exposed to radiation.
