Symptoms like "skin irritation," -"-various syndromes, blood changes,
gastrointestinal problems, etc." are present in a large portion of routine well baby
examinations! Fearmongering, a la lawyers, makes it likely that disease would be caused by worry about a baby getting a dose less than a week of background radiation!

Good question! Of course there would not have been a high exposure to
radiation, but if there were, the most obvious indication would be
skin irritation, such as would be the case from a fluoroscopic mis-
administartion. Then there are the various syndromes, blood changes,
gastrointestinal problems, etc. All of these syndromes are well
defined and can be easily looked up on the net.
