Stressing that there is no need for doing CT scans in mild COVID cases, AIIMS Director Dr Randeep Guleria said that many people are opting for the test the moment they find out they are positive for COVID-19 and added that misuse of CT scans and biomarkers may cause damage.
"Exposing yourself to radiation, again and again, may cause damage. So, there is no point in doing a CT scan in mild COVID-19 if the oxygen saturation is normal," Guleria said.
