First Read ASRT Scanner Oct/Nov 2011First Read ASRT Scanner Oct/Nov 2011
As a radiation therapist for the past nine years, I thought I had a solid understanding about the dangers of medical radiation.I understand the
importance of using the lowest possible doses on children, reproductive organs and whole-body scans. I wasn’t prepared, however, to
learn how over-imaged and overexposed the American public is.

The author describes the experience of a New Hampshire teen about to receive his 15th computed tomography scan before a radiologist
discovers the boy’s scan history and cancels the CT exam. More than just over-imaging is discussed in this short book. Olive explains in a
sweet way what x-rays are, how they work, the differences between x-rays and gamma rays and the different energies used in different
modalities. Charts show background radiation sources and doses and they list safe doses for specific body parts. This information makes
the book a useful tool for all radiologic science students and R.T.s, as well as the general public. For all the important information in this
book, my favorite part was about the pioneers of radiation and those who used it for entertainment. Most impressive to me were the stories
about traveling circuses that exposed customers and circus employees to fluoroscopy for the wonderment of all.
— Nicole Labrecque, R.T.(T), an ASRT member since 2004. https://www.asrt.org/Media/emag/sc101111/sc101111.aspx#/0/

A Real Eye-Opener!, February 9, 2012-By JBronx3337
My paranoid side always knew that radiation could do more harm than good, but it wasn't until I read this book that I realized just how
many of us are needlessly overexposed to radiation everyday. But this book doesn't just present scary facts; it also offers helpful
information--like listing safe radiation doses for specific parts of the body. And get this-- the book's not boring! The author managed to take
a complex subject and break it down into bite-sized pieces that even a layperson like myself could enjoy and understand. A real eye-opener!

This is a very informative book. A friend of mine heard about the thyroid protector and I was able to share information from the book.
