  • No problems I always have worries like that I think about my son won't be able to have babies later in life because of all the xrays

  • My daughter has had several scans and head ultrasounds as an infant. I'm not too concerned but I definitely would not want it to be a regular thing.

  • My daughter had head xrays at 5 1/2 months old for craniosynostosis. SO its not a bad thing.

  • IM sure dr.s know the ages that it will be safely done ot not. If it was not safe i dont think that they would even risk it.
