"When one admits that nothing is certain one must, I think, also admit that some things are much more nearly certain than others. [...] Key Method" We also searched major reports issued from governmental U.S. and world health-related agencies. Many studies have shown that organ doses associated with routine diagnostic CT scans are similar to the low-dose range of radiation received by atomic-bomb survivors. The FDA estimates that a CT examination with an effective dose of 10 mSv may be associated with an…Expand
