Radiological Exposures

In the early years of veterinary and medical radiology, many severe radiation injuries occurred in radiologists. Unfortunately, there are still cases of skin lesions of the hands affecting veterinarians, mainly caused by careless handling during the imaging. Safety advice includes staying out of the primary beam and being aware that lead gloves are no protection against primary rays. In contrast, the risk of placing the feet in the primary beam is relatively low. Monitoring of radiation shows that if veterinarians take appropriate precautions, there is no danger of radiation damage (24).
