I have had a lot more in the last year for in the hosptial and needed them almost daily for things-I wish I knew the results also-can't they be cancerious-I mean the people move from the room for a reason.
x rays are indeed cancerous, but it takes a very high dose to manipulate an destroy cells in your body and turn them cancerous. if you think about why the people leave the room, they do that kind of work all day, everyday so they are going to achive a much higher daily dose of x ray, but it takes a lot to harm u
That is very true dann47. It does take a lot of x-rays to have any effect on your body. The radiologists leave the room because they are exposed to it everyday, multiple times a day. I wouldn't worry about it.
X-rays can put out a certain amount of radiation, but I don't think it's that much. As far as how many are too many, it would depend on what the xrays are for. In some cases, that might be extreme, but in others, it might be normal. Only your doctor can really tell you for sure. Good luck!
I was in the hosptial for about 3 months and had chest x-rays, cat scans and other things done all the time-I had the x-rays almost daily though-I had what is called ARDS-it was the x-ray's that helped save me though also for they could see how my lungs were doing and how much fluid was there and the holes.
