Some believe that radiation from hearing aids would be harmful, but the Health Physics Society disproved that myth. The transmission frequencies of hearing aids are regulated by the Federal Communications Commission. In general, most medical devices are relatively insensitive to most radiations encountered in normal daily living, including most medical x-ray and even therapy machines. The one exception is magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), where the high magnetic fields will interfere with any magnetic objects. Users of such products are well aware of this. So if you every get an MRI, please take off your hearing aids before getting your MRI.
