The responsibility of the medical profession in the use of X-rays and other ionizing radiations



The responsibility of the medical profession in the use of X-rays and other ionizing radiations



Jour Genet Humaine 6(1): 70-75



The Scientific Committee of the U. N. General Assembly for the study of the effects of ionizing radiations acknowledges the undesirable effects of irradiation on human beings, notably on their reproductive tissues. In certain countries (U. S., United Kingdom, Sweden) the diagnostic use of radiologic techniques constitutes by far the greatest artificial source of human irradiation[long dash]equal, throughout the population, to that due to natural background radiation. The genetic consequences could be considerable. The Committee, fully cognizant of the medical value of radiation, calls the above to the attention of the medical world with a plea for the need of a more precise evaluation and documentation of the radiation dose distributed in medical use. The Committee would like to receive, through appropriate government channels, information on means of reducing the medical irradiation of the population without diminishing the value of radiology for diagnosis and treatment of disease.
