This book is designed to provide the physician with knowledge about radiations used in diagnostic radiologic procedures, an understanding of the radiologic data needed to assess the risks for pregnant women, information on the known risks for unborn children, and guidelines to manage and counsel women and their families. It outlines the decisions to be made when a woman, already exposed to radiation, is discovered to be pregnant or when a pregnant woman has medical problems that require diagnostic examination using x rays, radioisotopes, ultrasound, or magnetic resonance.
