Abstract
For 830 62-year-old residents of the city of Malmo records of radiographic examinations made over a period of 40 years at the Radiological Department of Malmo 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. Men with monotonous work and a more restricted latitude for decision-making... (More)

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. Men 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. Men and women with locomotor discomfort had a significantly higher consumption of not only musculoskeletal radiographic examinations but also other radiographic examinations. (Less)
