How much radiation is used in these exams?

AMI Pediatric ImagingWe all are exposed to small amounts of radiation daily from soil, rocks, building materials, air, water, and cosmic radiation. This is callednaturally occurring background radiation. The radiation used in X-rays and CT scans has been compared to background radiation we are exposed to daily. This comparison may be helpful in understanding relative radiation doses to the patient.
