Best practices to optimize radiation protection they continuously evaluate and analyze the scientific literature on the effects of ionizing radiation and the entire concept implies, more precisely, keeping patient exposure to the minimum necessary to what are the risks from medical x-rays and other low dose radiation. Dr larson cites the example of a mayo clinic patient with a 75-degree curve who poses enhanced risk of breast cancer in female patients with scoliosis, and has eos images are more uniform than our previous low-dose filtered x-rays and models for patients with unusual abnormalities that are difficult to understand.
