Shades of Grey: X-ray Safety and Effective Dose – Ep. 32
This episode of Endo Voices welcomes Dr. Rebecca Milman, medical physicist and section chief, Radiological Sciences, at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, who gets candidly transparent about dental imaging and radiation. Through scientific data, she exposes the truth about X-ray safety and dose. We talk best metrics to assess patient exposure and answer the truth about what “cumulative” really means. Ever wonder how much background radiation is really filtering though the environment daily, the amount of exposure from that bi-coastal flight, or what exposures really look like practicing in the Mile-High City? This episode provides listeners with thoroughly sound scientific answers to patient questions on shielding, pregnancy precautions and thyroid collars. No need to scan the pages of radiographic books anymore: Dr. Milman leaks more usable knowledge than rectangular collimation.
