[ RadSafe ] Some radiation okay for expectant mother and fetus

ROY et alii,

This is a classic example of one of the main principles in radiation 
protection: Risk vs. benefit!!!!! Unfortunately neither risk nor benefit are 
quantified in the paper.

In our previous (Austrian) radiation protection law all medical use of 
ionizing radiation I do not really know how this is now with our new one, 
which is (almost?) entirely based on the EU legislation. Since I am retired 
my interest in legislastion, which I previously had to deal with being 
working at the ministry in charge. How boring it was, considering my very 
widespread other interests.

Best wishes,
