About this chat
Radiologist Garry Choy, MD, of Massachusetts General Hospital discusses the health risks of radiation exposure, how you can protect yourself and the signs and symptoms of radiation sickness in this free one-hour health chat on Thursday, March 24, at 4pm ET/1pm PT.

Of the many fallouts from the tragic earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan, one of the most dire is the leaking of radioactive materials from the damaged nuclear reactors. On Thursday, March 17, 2011, President Obama stressed, “We do not expect harmful levels of radiation to reach the United States.” Still, the events bring to mind the question of radiation exposure. Get the facts in this free, one-hour health chat.

Garry Choy, MD, is a board-certified radiologist who specializes in diagnostic radiology at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA, and answers questions in MedHelp’s radiology forum.
