Thus, one may ask: Why, with such overwhelming evidence for health benefits rather than harm from low radiation
doses, is the LNT cancer risk model still used by regulatory and other governmental agencies worldwide?
Yet life itself evolved in an environment of low radiation
levels as the Earth was created by nuclear processes.
Numerous publications (1-5) based on clinical, epidemiological, and ecological studies have claimed increased cancer risk associated with low radiation
doses such as received from diagnostic imaging and other sources (e.
Russia and the IAEA will jointly conduct risk assessment for various types of cancer such as leukaemia among the population living on contaminated sites and exposed to medium and low radiation
Significant offerings include digital radiology with low radiation
doses, ultra-sounds, lab and pharmaceutical companies on site.
The Canon CXDI Series of Digital Radiography Systems incorporates the Canon LANMIT (Large Area New-MIS Sensor and TFT) X-ray image sensor, a digital radiography device that makes it possible to acquire high-resolution medical image data with a low radiation
Flat-panel volume CT allows the examination of bone at high resolution with relatively low radiation
exposure making it a suitable technique for evaluation of bone structure in adolescent patients," she added.
Most emergency workers and residents of contaminated areas received relatively low radiation
doses, comparable to natural background exposures in some areas of the world.
The measurements show very low radiation
doses to the atmosphere," Studsvik said.
The practice - previously thought harmless - uses a low radiation
The 7ft tall scanner, dubbed The Machine, weighs 500kg, cost pounds 120,000 and uses low radiation
X-rays to scan instead of strip search suspects.
Due to the low radiation
levels, the radioactive material posed no risk or danger,'' Wilson said.
