Flores – Radiation Safety

Published on November 17, 2021

Dr. Juan Carlos Flores discusses radiation safety. There are many sources of radiation in our everyday environments, particularly in the clinical setting. Dr. Flores discusses x-rays, a prominent form of radiation for pain specialists, in depth. He argues that we should be more responsible managing the interaction between x-rays and living matter. Fluoroscopy use also needs to be justified. Radiation has been linked to cancer. Thus, reducing radiation exposure for everyone is critical.
