Masama ba ang ma-xray within 2 months span?

my friend has been hired last december, but prior to employment she took chest x-ray last december.

and then another company called for her for employment. natural may medical check-up na naman. ang sabi ko wag na sya pa-xray kse kaka -xrau nya lang dati. but the doctor insisted it was ok.
so she had an x-ray today. ok lang ba yun?

what are the effects?

    does anyone here kindly enough to answer my query above?

    correct me if im wrong. ang alam ko kse, sa loob ng isang taon (or 12 months) it should be once or twice lang dapat ma-xray ang isang tao.

    talk about the half-life of radioactive material that bombards our body when we get x-ray.

    I wouldn't worry about it. For instance, the radiation from one CT scan is equivalent to several x-rays.

    ...from what i've learned, it is not really advisable (one x-ray lang a year di ba?)

    ...too much radiation could induce chromosamal breaks which could lead to mutation (...pero sa 2nd generation na yata yun so your friend doesn't have to worry...):D

    The amount of radiation of one chest XR has been estimated to be equivalent to about 1/6 of the radiation from the environment in one year. There really are no guidelines as to how many XRs an individual could be exposed in one year but since excessive radiation exposure is detrimental to health, it is important to minimize unnecessary exposures.

    Ok lang yun..;)

    A person is allowed to recieve a maximum of 5 rem per annum. Exceeding more than that require a rest. A Chest xray is a liitle radiation absorbed by a patient compare to a everyday life exposing us to a sunlight or ultraviolet light.
    Our xray technology now are more high tech, there are limitating devices and control that limit the irradtied area to be xray.

    Take it from me , im expert on that , im an xray tech :)

    Dont worry, well taking care of our patient's ;)

    what do you mean 5 rem? is it dangerous for me if I am going to have the xray this february for my sculiosis (lower back) and a chest xray for the company's annual physical exam on april or may? i'm worried kasi sabi nila nakakabaog sa mga girls
