Could the frequent exposure to radiations from X-rays affect the body?
My 5 year old son has had a total of 6 barium swallow x rays in his first four years of life. How much radiation will he have been exposed to? Equivalent to? I am worrying that they will have damaged his body? My daughter, now 3 1/2 years old, has had a chest x ray, a barium swallow, a videofluroscopy and 2 weeks after the VFS she had 2 hip x rays. Please could you shed some light on how much radiation shes received overall and whether I need to be worried. Thank you.
