Radiation-Emitting Electronic Products
Translational Interventional Radiology
Radiation-emitting electronic devices are widely used throughout our daily lives. They range from devices that make daily tasks more efficient such as cell phones and computer monitors to common household appliances like the microwave oven. They also play a significant role in medicine by detecting and treating major medical problems via devices such as mammography, computerized tomography, and positron emission tomography. Despite their appearance in everyday life, not everyone thinks about the impact these devices have on our society. This chapter discusses examples of radiation-emitting electronic devices, different types of radiation, and how to safely use ionizing radiation-emitting devices. The chapter concludes with a discussion on the general regulation of radiation-emitting electronic products and the budgetary implications to abide by these rules.
