The US Health Physics Society^ have stated that
the risk to health relating to doses of
radiation less than 100mSv
are either too small to be observed or are
non-existent.

If you scrolled your

If you scrolled down
this screen
another 200 times you
would get to 100.0mSv
where a minor risk
of cancer is evident.

So relax, knowing the
low dose technologies
used in SKG x-rays and other
diagnostic examinations
ensure that you receive
the smallest possible
dose of radiation.

* Typical average doses received
during various routine diagnostic
exams (not specific to SKG)
