Their opinion may be based on incorrect information which may lead to an overly casual attitude towards radiation or to an unreasonable fear of radiation. It is the objective of this video to present accurate information about the risks of medical radiation so that the medical community will be able to more accurately assess the benefits of diagnostic and therapeutic radiation in comparison to the risks.

Course Instructor: Dr. P. Andrew Karam

Since 1981 I have worked primarily in areas related to radiation safety; as a radiation safety professional, a scientist and professor, a consultant, or an instructor. I am also a writer, with over 200 encyclopedia articles and several books in print, and an 8-book series (Controversies in Science, Facts on File) in the works - not to mention my scientific and technical writing (6 book chapters, a number of refereed papers, over 100 scientific presentations, several hundred encyclopedia articles, fact sheets, and over 100 technical articles and editorials in scientific and technical journals and newsletters).
