DCBE and risk of radioinduced somatic and genetic damage
In daily clinical practice, dosimetric aspects of roentgenologic examinations are often neglected. Also in radiology publications this topic is not discussed so much as it should, except for some general remarks referring to the various types of examinations as a whole. Perhaps this attitude is due to the fact that the radiologist has become somehow familiar with an invisible enemy, whose action is difficult to relate to immediate damage.
