Interesting Websites

As we all are probably aware the use of radiation in the emergency department has increased over the past two decades.

The UC Davis EM Residency had our weekly lecture series today and we had a lecture about decreasing ionized radiation. The lecturer pointed out some interesting websites dedicated to education on this topic:

imagegently.com
Imagewisely.org
xrayrisk.com

If you have a chance go check out these websites. I’ll leave it up to you to formulate opinions on accuracy of the education they provide. I found it fun to predict my risk of cancer after a “pan scan” on xrayrisk.com. Yes, I admit the “fun” statement makes me at risk of being labeled “nerdy” but oh well.
