Imaging and kids: FDA recommends using X-ray systems with the lowest radiation exposure needed for child X-rays

X-ray assists in the diagnosis and treatment of various medical conditions in pediatric patients. Because younger patients are more sensitive to radiation, these imaging exams must be carefully and properly used, especially with X-rays that use ionizing radiation, a form of energy, which can present risks to young patients. Pediatric patients require less radiation than adults to obtain a quality image from an X-ray exam, so healthcare professionals must take extra care to “child size” the radiation dose.
