Study Finds Radiologists Do Not Have a Higher Risk of Radiation-Related Death

In a large-scale study, researchers compared the incidence of cancer, and mortality rates of radiologists and psychiatrists who graduated between 1916 and 2006 from medical school. The studies are intended to help evaluate the effectiveness of radiation protection steps, and the effects of long-term protracted exposure radiation at low levels. More...

Cancer Risk Due to CT is Not Fully Appreciated

Researchers at the University of Saskatchewan (Saskatoon, Canada) conducted a survey among 328 medical professionals in Saskatchewan province to assess healthcare providers' knowledge regarding radiation dosing from CT scans. To do so, they queried them regarding the average radiation dose from an abdominal-pelvic CT, which is 10 millisieverts (mSv), compared to 0.02-0.2 mSv from one chest x-ray, which indicates that the radiation dose from an abdominal-pelvic CT scan is between 100-250 times that of a chest radiograph.
