Children and radiation risk in the age of increased utilization of CT

McGonigal Huser, Meghan PA-C; Grosel, John M. MD

Journal of the American Academy of PAs: January 2013 - Volume 26 - Issue 1 - p 36–40

Radiation from CT poses a higher risk in children because their cells proliferate more quickly, opening them to the possibility of more DNA mutations.

Meghan Huser practices in general surgery at Riverview Hospital in Noblesville, Indiana. John Grosel is an assistant professor in the Marietta College PA program and practices radiology with Riverside Radiology and Interventiona Associates, Inc, which is based in Columbus, Ohio.
