Test for Radium Radionuclides
What is Radium Radionuclides?
Approximately 80% of our exposure to radioactivity is natural and another 20% is from man made sources, although more frequent use of diagnostic imaging involving radiation (x-rays, CT scans) is increasing exposure from this source. We are exposed to naturally occurring radiation for example from radon gas emanating from rocks and soil, and cosmic radiation from space.
What are Radionuclides’ health effects?Some people who drink water containing radium in excess of the MCL over many years may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
