Insulin Pumps

Question from Newburgh, New York, USA:

My daughter's insulin pump failed and needed replacement one week after returning from travelling by air. Could the damage have been caused by a hand held scanner used at the security checkpoint?

Answer:

No. Insulin pumps should not be sensitive to that level of radiation.
