7:10 pm
it ises, over 350 people killed and one confusing speech, president mubarak fled cairo and resigned as president of egypt, giving the people of egypt and president obama what he they wanted. in fact, in a fox news poll when asked about the obama administration, how they handled the situation of egypt, almost half of american voters 48%, while they approved, a third disapproved 32%, but voter sentiment is mixed where the relationship between egypt and the united states currently stands. 42% think egypt truly a friend and about the same number, 43% say it is not. harris. >> a lot of people waiting to see exactly what happens next politicalically. thank you very much. new details about a bank robbery in north carolina. we know the suspect had hostages and told he had a gun and now police are saying something he very different. and concern growing for american businesses on the border, a look how mexico's

playboy mansion, one of the hottest party tickets around, but not be all paradise. health officials vfg complaints of a respiratory illness, that broke out during a fundraiser, the event drew 700 people from 30 countries and they doesn't think the illness spread beyond or actually at the gathering. new concerns over the average american dose of medical radiation. some people say too much radiation increases cancer risk and now, the use of one medical device with a high radiation output is soaring around the nation. casey stegall is live for us in los angeles and despite the concerns, is this medical piece of equipment necessary in those cases. >> yeah, harris, had a lot of people would argue the idea of x-rays and cat scans and things of that nature, revolutionized medicine and
7:23 pm
changed the way that doctors diagnosed problems. a lot of the experts will tell you that the immediate side effects of of of medical radiation are not that well-known and that's for couple of different reasons, because the amount of radiation given varies, depending on the tests you're getting and on the patient. radiation is measured in millireceivers and according to the college of radiation, an x-ray of your arm, for example, composes you to around .001, and a dental x-ray .005 and a mammogram.4. by far the highest is a ct scan of the abdomen with contrast, up to 30. by the way, 62 million ct scans are done every year across this country. some context and perspective for you. according to multiple studies people who survive the japan atomic bomb were exposed to as little as 50. and the doctors say the likelihood of actually getting cancer from x-rays is
7:24 pm
relatively low. >> for 40 years of expansion and diagnostic radiation, if the cancer hypothesis were really true we should see an increasing rate of cancer, a cancer epidemic, we're not. cancer incidents per captive has been flat for the last ten years. >> however, the food and drug administration looking to make some changes, for example, requiring manufacturers of those devices, for example, to print the dose on each film or image so that patients and doctors can keep track of how much they're receiving over a lifetime. there are also alternatives. >> and call it groon imaging, where we've actually made the investment, for instance, in mr technology and magnetic resonance, it not a radiation component to it.
7:25 pm
>> before we sound panic alarms, doctors say it's important to keep it all in perspective. back in the day before radiation technology was available, the only method that doctors had to pinpoint a problem internally was through exploratory surgery and a lot of people would rather take an x-ray rather than lying on the operating room table. >> harris: more than 60 million of those operations or procedures performed. can you imagine if those were surgeries, exploratory surgery? >> exactly. >> harris: casey, thank you very much. president obama's budget about to be released and what the proposed test could mean for your bottom line, your wallet, your own budget and a murder spree in new york city. leaving four people dead. we're hearing from people who came in contact with the man suspected of going on such a deadly rampage. stay with us. >> passing all lights and everything, there are people that would run out for their lifers and-- everybody this way and--
