Abstract

Dialysis patients are at greater risk for cancers, cardiovascular disease, and all-cause mortality than people in the general population. Novel risk factors have been identified that may help explain these risk elevations. We discuss medical radiation exposure as a novel risk factor in dialysis patients and suggest the need for future research on this topic.
