James Donaldson, MD on Minimizing Radiation Exposure

On WGN-TV's Medical Watch, Medical Imaging Chief ​James Donaldson, MD explains that "children have a long time to live. Their tissues are growing and rapidly turning over, so the radiation effects can do more potential damage to children than in adults.”

Thanks to new technology available at Lurie Children’s, the time needed for scans has been reduced, along with the amount of radiation given. ​
