    Article - En anglais

    For 830 62-year-old residents of the city of Malmö records of radiographic examinations made over a period of 40 years at the Radiological Department of Malmö General Hospital and/or over 20-30 years at two private radiological departments in the city were reviewed.

    Radiographic examination had been undertaken in 92% of the residents, with on an average 16 examinations per resident.

    The most common examinations were of the chest in 63% of the residents followed by lower limb (58%) and spine (52%) examinations.

    In men the total number of radiographic examinations were negatively correlated to income, intelligence test results and social network and job satisfaction.

    Met with monotonous work and a more restricted latitude for decision-making at work, as well as men who were smokers had also had significantly more radiographic examinations.

    Single civil status and occupational work load had in men a positive correlation with the total number of radiographic examinations, as well as with serum levels of glutamyltransferase and uric acid levels.

    In women there was a negative correlation between radiographic examinations and teachers'rating of intelligence in childhood and bone mineral content, whereas job satisfaction, life success and triceps skinfold index (=subcutaneous fat tissue thickness) had a positive correlation with the total number of radiographic examinations.

    Women who took regular exercise (every week) had had significantly fewer radiographic examinations. (...)
