How safe are X-Rays?

    The medical community generally agrees that the small theoretical risks associated with the use of radiation are greatly outweighed by the information x-rays provide to the physician.

    Computed Radiography (CR) is a new computer aided x-ray system, which offers higher resolution and throughput than that usually seen by plain conventional x-rays. It also gives these excellent images with much less radiation exposure than normal plain x-rays.
