Radiation exposure to patients is always a primary concern. Current research and information indicates an increase in effective dose to the U.S. population, due in part, to increases in medical imaging procedures. In this program we discuss ionizing radiation and its impact on the vulnerable pediatric patient. We explore positioning methods that minimize radiation exposure to children, and offer suggestions for reducing technique.
