Abstract

Roentgen examinations should be made only when there are good clinical indications. The only good indication (other than research) is a reasonable probability that the patient will benefit medically from the examination. Films which are made should be done with the utmost care in an effort to avoid repeat exposures to ionizing radiation. Precise collimation of the beam on the portion of the body under examination should be a rule. Automatic collimation should be employed whenever possible. The gonads should be shielded with lead guards in all examinations except when they lie in the field of diagnostic interest (3).
