abstract
Exposure to ionizing radiation from diagnostic imaging procedures has dramatically increased in the last three decades. Computed tomography is a powerful and invaluable diagnostic imaging tool, but it is essential that the radiation risks be appropriately quantified so that clinicians are in the best possible position to assess the risks and benefits associated with its use. Our group uses sophisticated small animal lung tumorigenesis models to investigate the carcinogenic risks of low dose radiation.
