Whether it is possible to do or make a roentgen at pregnancy and how much radiation can be harmful from inspection
The period of bearing of the child is accompanied by a number of restrictions, including, in particular, the intake of certain medications and the implementation of certain procedures. No woman is immune from the situation when an urgent X-ray examination is required, which often provokes fetal development disorders.
Refusal of diagnosis can lead to much worse consequences, up to the threat to the life of the future mother. Let’s consider, in what situations is necessary the roentgen at pregnancy, its consequences and restrictions.
The danger of ionizing radiation is its effect on the process of cell growth. Usually body tissues do not react to X-rays. But with active cell division, the wave action interferes with the normal course of the process. The integrity of DNA, which controls all processes of human activity, is violated. There are two possible consequences of an X-ray examination:
- Death of the cell. Damage to protein structures during fission makes the continued existence of the irradiated component impossible. Affected cells die, while others divide and replace them.
- Mutation. The process of division is completed, but due to DNA damage, the cells become inferior. With a large number of such anomalies, malignant neoplasms develop in the body.
