How can I find out how much radiation I receive during an x-ray?

For specific information about how much radiation you may receive during an x-ray, ask the facility where you received the x-ray to ask the medical physicist who provides services to the facility. He/she should be able to give you information regarding your specific x-ray.

For a more general estimate, see RadiologyInfo.
