Xray Exposure

Over the past several years, we have had to come to grips with the idea that as useful as Xrays are, exposure is an issue. The Medical profession is actually responsible for 5 percent of the cancers in America.

Not only do I have the latest in digital xray equipment, giving the lowest exposure that I can, I try not to obtain xrays that will not influence care or give needed information. I try to make it my responsibility to limit unnecessary exposure, especially in the care of conditions such as Hip Dysplasia and Scoliosis, where long-term care is necessary.
