Occupational Radiation Exposure and Deaths From Malignant Intracranial Neoplasms of the Brain and CNS in U.S. Radiologic Technologists, 1983-2012 (2017)
 Among 83,655 female and 26,642 male radiologic technologists, the risk of dying from malignant intracranial neoplasms of the brain and central nervous system was not associated with cumulative absorbed occupational radiation dose to the brain. This finding did not differ by sex or birth cohort.
Incidence and mortality risks for circulatory diseases in US radiologic technologists who worked with fluoroscopically guided interventional procedures, 1994-2008 (2016)
 Among U.S. radiologic technologists who ever (compared to never) performed fluoroscopically-guided procedures (FGIP), a significant 34% excess risk for stroke incidence and a non-significant 22% excess risk for stroke mortality were observed; performing FGIP was not associated with mortality from all causes, all circulatory diseases, all heart diseases, ischaemic heart disease, acute myocardial infarction or hypertension.
