Note that MRI and Ultrasound imaging do not produce any radiation.
The exposure encountered during an imaging procedure varies. The exposure can be compared to that received over the course of one year from natural radiation in our environment, such as the air we breathe, the ground we walk on, and the food we eat. To learn more about how imaging exams compare, visit the American College of Radiology’s patient-focus website.
We want to provide peace of mind and make you aware of the precautions we take and the advances in technology that allow us to lower your radiation exposure during your medical imaging exam without compromising quality.
