Yes; these authors should study modern radiobiology.

Subject: [cdn-nucl-l] Increase in Cancer Risk due to Cardiac Imaging
Date: Tuesday, February 8, 2011, 3:28 PM
A recent study on cardiac imaging of heart attack patients by Eisenberg et al. in the journal of the Canadian Medical Association (7Feb2011) reports a dose response and a cancer risk of 3% per 10 mSv dose in patients. This seems extremely high.
