A healthcare worker could receive more than twice the annual limit of radiation exposure simply by holding the head of a trauma patient four times per week with unshielded hands during cervical spine radiography (National Center for Biotechnology). The National Council on Radiation Protection & Measurements recommends an annual limit of occupational radiation exposure to the skin, hands, and feet at 500 milli-sievert.
