The adverse effects of ionizing radiation are known through studies on animal models, and further investigations are required to evaluate teratogenic effects and to develop effective protection measures. An exploratory finding from a study undertaken in 2011 revealed teratogenic effects on the infants of mothers working in the medical field, wearing a dosimeter, and potentially exposed to ionizing radiation.
