How Much is Too Much Radiation?

Radiation is a form of energy. You use it when you turn on a lamp, microwave food or listen to your radio. Pictures of bones and organs are made with a special type called ionizing radiation. Medical imaging methods that use ionizing radiation include X-ray, fluoroscopy, computed tomography (CT scan), nuclear medicine and positron emission tomography (PET scan).

In general, infants, children and young adults are more sensitive to radiation than adults and older people. We shield certain organs and use special techniques to limit doses.
