That'd still only be a few rads and twenty rads is the lowest exposure to be observed to have ANY adverse effects on the body.

MRIs are just really powerful magnets.
They won't hurt you.
Unless you're wearing a stainless steel watch, in that case they'll amputate your hand.

What kind of doctor would advise 8 ct scans. In a single year no less.
User avatar #19 to #14 - generaljosh (11/18/2013) [-]
Why in the hell did you have 8 CT scans?
They really don't show all that much, doctors usually prescribe them so that, in the off chance that you do have something that would show up on a CT but not an X-ray, you can't sue them out the ass.

Minimum annual radiation to inflict $80b of damage to your country.

sources for those facts?
User avatar #29 to #1 - mooproxy (11/18/2013) [-]
The IFLS website and facebook page. They're usually pretty accurate in what they say.

Tell that to Marie Curie.

Well, marie curie actually handed the uranium.
And by "living near" he means "living within 400-600 meters of distance".
So yeah, **** you

Can someone compare what OP posted to the "Elephants Foot" from the Chernobyl disaster? Someone said the guy in this photo, as well as the photographer died in the same day because of radiation. Can anyone shed any light on this? I love learning about this stuff, especially chernobyl but I'm a moron when it comes to calculations especially when it comes to Radiation.

Can someone traslate this mrem unit to RADS?
#20 to #16 - rhodg (11/18/2013) [-]
1 RAD is 1000 mREM.
User avatar #18 to #16 - generaljosh (11/18/2013) [-]
1 rem = 1 rad, so 1 mrem (milli Roentgen Equivalent in Man) is equal to 1/1000 of a rad

yeah well you dont need a lifetime risk to get it just once and then live with it. im not savin up to get cancer at 80, but wouldnt want to get it before 20 either.

When I was visiting CERN the researchers told us they had some limitations of how much CT scans can they uptake and whether they can be aboard an airplane due to all the radiation they are exposed to in their work.

I'm not sure what the biggest cube is? anyone please?
User avatar #7 to #6 - nothingatall ONLINE (11/18/2013) [-]
The amount of rads that has been actually shown to relate to the presence of cancer, 10 000 mrem annually MIGHT give you cancer
