Dental X-rays routinely subject to Brain Tumor Risk
Imaging procedure that uses X-rays (x-ray), such as x-rays, often polemical.Because, once X-rays to help view the inside of the body, the effects of radiationcaused cell mutation triggers. Long-term effects could create problems for thebody, such as infertility or tumor.
The findings of researchers from Yale University recently also showed similar results. According to them, there is a relationship between the patients who oftenperform the dental X-ray photographs of the possibility of brain tumor.Meningioma brain tumors are the most common type. The possibility of catching the disease increased by five times.
The possibility of the highest risk was found among children aged 10 years and under, when they underwent several X-ray photographs of the teeth. In adulthood,the potential for brain tumors has doubled. Meningioma risk associated with X-rayexamination of the entire mouth in a panoramic position would also bitewing. If thepatient routinely perform these tests more than once a year, the risk becomes greater.
“Our findings suggest an increased risk was statistically significant in the secondfilm, bitewing and panorama,” said Dr. Elizabeth Claus, lead investigator, told the Daily Express.
These researchers observed causality of the observation of 1433 patients aged20-70 brain tumors, as compared with healthy people. Of their medical history,many patients exposed to tumor had undergone at least two times in dental X-ray examination, either a panoramic bitewing want any.
