Welcome to the site

I started collecting these weblinks as a first year radiology resident at the University of Cincinnati. I initially created this site for personal use, but wanted to share the information with my fellow residents. If you find any good sites for me to add, have comments about the site, or anything else related, please feel free to email me at jason(at) Follow us on twitter or friend us on facebook using Rad Residents or jason(at)

Enjoy the site.

Radiation in Pregnancy

These numbers are related to fetal dose and were presented at the 2008 ARRS Meeting by Mark Bernstein, MD from NYU. This was presented within "Imaging of Traumatic Injuries in Pregnancy."

In general, <5 rads is negligible.

C spine Xray - undetectable
Chest Xray - <0.0001 rad
Pelvic Xray - 0.2 rad
Head CT - <0.05 rad
Chest CT - <0.5 rad
Abd/Pelvis Ct - 3-5 rad
