Diagnostic Devices Using Nonionizing Radiation

DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING with non-ionizing radiation (NIR) allows non-invasive assessment of the structure and function of the human body without the risks associated with imaging by ionizing radiation, and iswidely employed in medical care.With advances in technology, increasingly sophisticated devices that exploit NIR are being introduced into clinical practice, and it is important to ensure that their use does not carry unwarranted risks to health.
