The population was divided into 2 groups according to the presence or absence of occupational exposure to ionizing radiation. Comparisons between groups were made using the Mann-Whitney U test and [Chi.sup.2] test for continuous and nominal data, respectively.
There are no reports on the awareness and knowledge of the risks associated with ionizing radiation for radiological procedures in Bahrain, as well as comparisons between prescribed and self-presenting patients.
How Ionizing Radiation Causes Cancer And Other Deadly Threats
For the three studies that calculated relative risk, the researchers calculated a pooled RR of BCC after ionizing radiation treatment of 2.65 (95% confidence interval, 1.22-5.72), compared with controls.
He said, "Our devices also can be used in deep space applications in the presence of cosmic ionizing radiation, and can help robotics to control troubled nuclear reactors without degradation."

Laboratory experiments have demonstrated that ionizing radiation can cause breakage of the DNA chain or can deter cell replications.
Even the ionizing radiation we are exposed to in our daily environment is at a very low level, which poses no significant impact.
Ionizing radiation consists of subatomic particles or electromagnetic waves that are energetic enough to detach electrons from atoms or molecules, ionizing them.
This update to the National Council on Radiation Protection & Measurements (NCRP) report on ionizing radiation risks for the thyroid gland provides scientists and health care researchers with new radiation dosimetry findings discovered in the last two decades.

The American Heart Association urged doctors to weigh risks and benefits carefully in ordering diagnostic tests such as computed tomography, or CT, angiograms and nuclear stress tests in order to minimize the doses of ionizing radiation. Such low-dose radiation has the potential to cause cancer.
