Hi Dr. B. My 10 year old hurt her foot above her big toe last night. I took her to urgent care because it was late, and our ped was closed. They did an X-ray of that area. Well, now, I'm worrying over the radiation. I asked my daughter how far the apron came up, and she showed me below her breasts. I've been worried sick over this. I've never liked X-rays; especially in children. She's only had dental X-rays in the past. The girl told me it was the pediatric dose administered. Do you feel she was exposed to a minimal amount even if her breasts were exposed. Just wanted to see if you have some info that could ease my mind. Thank you.

I also meant to add that the apron was an adult size, so it probably slipped down.
