Lesson 24 – X-ray, Fetus And Friend

Within a day, three questions were asked and the content was "extremely confused and worried" because she had missed an X-ray and was later found pregnant.
Firstly, I would like to answer for your peace of mind to continue reading "the risk of your baby being affected by the last X-ray is very low" (one case of foot scan, one lung scan and one sister hold child. X-ray).
Are you worried about these things when having an X-ray?
: X-ray does not increase the risk of miscarriage with radiation dose <5 rad (measurement unit). Every pregnant woman herself has a 3-15% risk of miscarriage available, regardless of the x-ray or not. Effect on fetal development: the risk of birth defects, even in doses of 10-20 rad, this risk does not increase significantly. The fetus develops slowly if the radiography is early, but sometimes up to 50 rad. The risk of baby cancer: if early X-ray, radiation dose> 5 rad, this risk increases from 0

3 to 1% (repeat that this risk also exists 0.

3% - data of CDC - whether or not you were exposed to radiation during pregnancy).
Some common types of radiographs
Estimated fetal absorption (rad units) per scan and number of shots likely to affect (5 rad dose)
First: estimate the fetus absorbs 0.004 / 1 scan => to reach the effective dose of 5 rad takes 1250 shots
Teeth (dentistry): estimated fetal absorption of 0.0001 / 1 scan => to reach the effective dose of 5 rad takes 50,000 shots
Cervical spine: estimated fetal absorption of 0.002 / 1 scan => to reach the effective dose of 5 rad takes 2500 shots
Hands - feet: estimate fetal absorption of 0.001 / 1 session => to reach an effect dose of 5 rad takes 5000 shots
Chest: estimated fetal absorption of 0.00007 / 1 scan => to reach an effect dose of 5 rad needed 71429 shots
Breast: estimate fetal absorption of 0
02 / 1 scan => to reach an effect dose of 5 rad takes 250 shots
Abdominal: estimated fetal absorption of 0.

245 / 1 scan => to reach an effect dose of 5 rad required 20 shots
Lumbar spine: estimated fetal absorption of 0.359 / 1 scan => to reach the effective dose of 5 rad takes 13 shots
Pelvis: estimated fetal absorption of 0.04 / 1 scan => to reach the effective dose of 5 rad takes 125 shots
Pregnancy stage and X-ray
First two weeks of pregnancy: risk of miscarriage when radiation dose> 5 rad
Week 3 to 8: risk of influencing pregnancy when radiation dose is> 20 - 30 rad
After the 20th week: the fetus is fully developed and the risk of miscarriage is not increased by X-ray. This is less likely because not many people are pregnant until 20 weeks without knowing they are pregnant. The radiography at this stage is for diagnosis and often the doctor has to weigh the benefits and risks
Remember that when using radiation, apart from helping to find out what disease you have (called diagnosis), your doctor also uses radiation to treat diseases (called treatment). A lot of research on the effects, risks ...

the doctor can determine the necessary dose. So this information is important here:
No X-ray technique is harmful to a fetus with one scan
Doses of less than 5 rad do not increase the risk for the fetus, doses that may cause birth defects may be> 15 rad
When you are pregnant and need an X-ray, reassure yourself that with a single scan the fetus is very low, including the risk of miscarriage.
Do men have x-rays that affect sperm?
Absolutely not if not "touch" to the testes such as X-ray of the head, hands - feet ... If men take X-rays of the abdomen, pelvis - hip or bladder ...

the risk of affecting the sperm is also low. There are very large, long-term studies (for example, radiation-infected patients in Hiroshima and Nagasaki) showing no increase in the incidence of genetic diseases. However, if you are exposed to large doses of radiation, or even "worry", you can delay having a baby for about 4 months (by the time of the production of 2 sperm production cycles) for an safe.
How to minimize the risk of X-ray infection
Although the information is good on the whole, it does not mean that you are indifferent because how to ensure you are not accidentally infected by the ray. Always keep reminding me to "be careful and not optimal"
Tell your doctor that you are pregnant, or even "maybe you are pregnant" when an x-ray is ordered. X-rays are also associated with the use of contrast material (that is, when a medicine is taken), so it is always important to be careful.
Watch for signs that you may be pregnant when you are preparing for a health exam, such as vomiting, nausea, fatigue, and breast tenderness. It may be a symptom of some disease, but talk to your doctor so that he or she has a way of determining it.

If you are pregnant and are recommended to hold / hold your baby when they need an x-ray, you should actively suggest a replacement when possible. If your baby only wants her to be around, be boldly asking for a shirt to carefully shield her stomach from radiation.
While looking for information in this article, I accidentally read a large study on health workers about the risk of pregnancy when exposed to chemicals and X-rays due to work, most of the risk of miscarriage increased by 2- 6 times. Do not want to comment, just try to finish writing this article, so patients do not panic, worry, to mine.
