I really don't find that 'fact' bothersome . . .
. . . I'm sure med HPs don't know a lot about pharmacology, for example.
What is disturbing . . .
. . . I sense (I'm not in med HP) the med hps are not 'consulted' prior
to the Drs discussion with a patient on 'routine' CT & MRI.
I would be more upset if the sonologist(?) wasn't sure, or thought 'yes',
relative to ultrasound procedures involve ionizing radiation.

A link is shown below to a disturbing, recently published study of how many
physicians underestimate CT rad risks, and how many think MRI, and ultrasound
procedures involve ionizing radiation! See:
