Dental radiology employs low doses and for the elderly. The risks associated with some of the diagnostic inves- tigations are discussed in Chapter 4. Adilah Ismail marked it as to-read Jan 27, It is therefore assumed that there is no threshold dose, and that every Dose Whole-body effect exposure to ionizing radiation carries with it the possibility of inducing a stochastic effect.


When the surrounding square is black, the observer perceives the inner square to be very pale, while when the surrounding square is light grey, the observer perceives the inner square to be dark.

Introduction to radiological 2. This produces a similar image in each case containing a mass in a different position or of a different with no evidence of the mass. X-rays can affect film emulsion to produce denttal visual image the radiograph and can cause certain salts to fluoresce and to emit light — the principle behind the use of intensifying screens in extraoral cassettes see Ch.

The graphs can be extrapo- of cancer induction lated to zero the controversy on risk assessment revolves around exactly how this extrapolation Quantifying the risk of somatic stochastic effects, should be doneand dentxl risk factor for induction of such as radiation-induced cancer, is complex and cancer by low doses of radiation can be calculated.

This is discussed further in Chapter rariology. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Data from groups exposed to high doses of radiation are analysed and the results are A broad estimate of the magnitude of the risk of used to provide an estimate of the risk from the developing a fatal radiation-induced cancer, from low doses of radiation encountered in diagnostic various X-ray examinations, was published in the radiology.
