Pediatric Radiology

This examination uses X-rays at the lowest possible dose to limit as much as possible exposure to X-rays according to current recommendations. The risk of radiation-induced consequences is indeed greater in children in full cell growth. This makes the child more sensitive to radiation. The X-ray machines used in children are the same as in adults.
