Abstract: Exposure to ionizing radiation can be a source of anxiety for many pregnant women and their health care providers. An awareness of the radiation doses delivered by different techniques and the acceptable exposure thresholds can help both patients and practitioners. We describe exposure to radiodiagnostic procedures during pregnancy and suggest an approach to assess the potential risk.
