Description

Diagnostic imaging procedures are frequently used during pregnancy, especially ultrasound. Use of other modalities, however, is controversial and often results in significant concern over damage to the developing fetus. The purpose of this article is to discuss the various forms of radiologic evaluation and their potential effect (if any) on pregnancy. These include the use of x-rays, magnetic resonance, and radioisotope procedures.

Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Discuss the potential risks of radiation exposure (x-ray usage) during pregnancy and the time period of most concern for these procedures.

2. Define the limits of ultrasound energy output that is recommended for use in pregnancy and explain the various ways in which magnetic resonance might be used.

3. Describe the types of nuclear medicine studies that might be utilized in women of childbearing age and the limitations that should be observed.
