How Much Radiation are you Really Exposed To during Bedside X-Rays?

Portable X-Rays…how safe are your gonads: The background radiation we are exposed to every day (from cosmic rays, brick buildings, etc) amounts to about 2400 microGrays per year. At approximately 1 meter away from the patient, the amount of radiation from chest X-ray scatter is around 0.2 microGrays which is far is less than the radiation we are exposed to naturally every hour!
