Abstract

Over the past several years, the cancer risks associated with radiation from diagnostic imaging have received increased attention in both the medical literature and the lay press. In the midst of this heightened scrutiny, there has been growing support for the idea of tracking cumulative dose estimates that longitudinally document the accumulated medical radiation exposure of each individual patient. The authors review the current consensus model of radiation-induced carcinogenesis and use this framework to provide a rational assessment of several potential cumulative dose estimate utilization strategies.
