Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging
The extensive use of radiation in paediatric age needs a profound balance of safety between possible risks and clinical advantage.
Specific Imaging Types
Computed Tomography (CT)
A technique called computed tomography (CT) uses X-rays to take photos or images in incredibly thin slices through the area of the body that the doctor wants to be examined.
Digital radiography directly records data during the patient evaluation on x-ray-sensitive plates and sends it to a computer system without the necessity of a middle cassette.
Fluoroscopy is a medical treatment that uses x-rays to create a real-time video of the motions inside a body component over the course of several minutes. An example of ionizing radiation is X-rays.
An interventional procedure is carried out by a radiologist using radiological imaging guidance such as x-ray, ultrasound, or CT to guide or target the examination.
Nuclear medicine utilizes radioactive substances inside the body to examine how organs and tissues are working or to identify and treat damaged or ill organs and tissues.
The term “ultrasound” is used to describe high-frequency soundwaves. These sound waves are used in ultrasound exams to project an image or picture of the inside of your body onto a screen.
