Although this is feasible and done in most developing nations, this is generally not performed in developed nations, in part reflecting the time costs of direct physician scanning. Discussion of specific US indications Female pelvis and obstetrics The majority of indications for pelvic US include: 1) pelvic pain, 2) amenorrhea, 3) evaluation of vaginal bleeding (mainly post-menopausal), and 4) palpable mass. US allows a high confidence of diagnosis of the most common gynecological diseases involving the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries.

Organizations such as the Health Physics Society (2004) believe that the LNT is an oversimplification, and risk estimates should not be used at <50 mSv [24]. The French Academy of Sciences (2004) and American Nuclear Society (2001) hold that LNT overestimates risk [25, 26]. Radiation risk estimates at low radiation doses remains a controversial topic, and there is currently no scientific consensus regarding the existence of any threshold dose below which the risk of cancer induction would be zero.

Radiation risk estimates at low radiation doses remains a controversial topic, and there is currently no scientific consensus regarding the existence of any threshold dose below which the risk of cancer induction would be zero. Given the uncertainty as to whether there is, or is not, a threshold dose for radiation-induced cancer, any decision made may eventually turn out to be erroneous.
