Charlotte Radiology is committed to quality, accurate reads and participates in the American College of Radiology's (ACR) quality initiative programs. As a result we are actively involved in understanding and weighing the benefits and risk of our imaging procedures.
Radiation Exposure Risks in Black & White
The descriptions below outline some common imaging procedures and the radiation risks associated with them; while we provide examples of comparable risks, each modality's radiation dosage varies by study (imaging the head vs. the chest, etc.).
MRI - Magnetic Resonance Imaging does NOT use radiation to image patients. There is no radiation risk involved in this study.
Questions for Patients & Physicians to Ask
Both Charlotte Radiology and the ACR urge patients and physicians to review the following questions, taken from the "Radiology Safety" section of the ACR web site:
