 Are the dangers of second hand smoke real?

How safe is a chest x-ray on a 2 year old?

no radiation is safe, but if the xray is necessary then get it done. ask the pediatrician.

A lot safer than the disease that your pediatrician is worried about who ordered the test.

Ask the doctor why a test is ordered, try not to second guess their judgement.

completely safe if done by a professional.

Dr. Nayyar
The 2 year old will be just fine. The amount of rads in a simple xray is small. Think of it this way, we give xays and CT scans to pregnant women.
Your child will be just fine.

Don't worry about it. The radiation dose now-a-days is very low for chest x-rays. ( we probably damage more cells taking a hot bath than having a chest x-ray ). Your 2 year old will be fine. No worries at all.
