X-rays should be limited says German Radiological Protection Commission (SSK):

Executive Summary

Stronger justification for X-ray examinations and stricter quality guidelines for equipment are required in Germany, according to the country's Radiological Protection Commission (SSK). The institution, part of the Environment Ministry, says Germany performs 1,200 X-ray examinations per 1,000 people each year, compared with 800 per 1,000 people in the US. Although this reflects high medical standards, the radiological burden on the population must be reduced, says commission head Christian Streffer. This can be done by replacing old equipment and a more judicious use of radiological examinations by doctors.
