Key PickKey Reviews are selected for their clinical importance or significance and are marked with a key icon.

Background: Radiologic imaging is said to carry risk of cancer from radiation exposure and is derived on the linear no-threshold hypothesis (LNTH), which states that all acute ionizing radiation exposure down to zero is harmful proportionally to dose and that it yields cumulative harm throughout life, regardless of how low the dose. Objective: To end the radiophobia and to provide evidence that low-dose radiation of radiologic imaging has no documented pathway to harm. Results: FAI more...
