To help consumers assess their risk of radiation exposure and take steps to reduce exposure, Beaumont Hospitals has launched a radiation safety call center.
The radiation safety call center is staffed 24 hours a day by registered nurses, specially trained and supported by Beaumont's radiation safety experts.
The center's toll-free phone number is 888-388-MYCT (6928).
There are many diagnostic medical tests that involve radiation exposure, including X-rays and computed tomography scans. People with medical conditions requiring frequent medical imaging, and children, are at greater risk of harm from radiation exposure
