Abstract

To effectively practice radiation protection, radiographers must understand the potential biologic effects of radiation. This article reviews the importance of a knowledge of radiobiology to the work of radiologic technologists. The author describes four specific biologic effects from radiation exposure--leukemia, thyroid cancer, breast cancer and fetal effects--and presents clinical examples that relate to current radiation protection practices and concerns.
