Abstract: The radiation dose to the male gonadal area was measured during routine intra-oral and panoramic radiography. It was found to be 0.8 millirad and 0.3 millirad, respectively. The estimated dose can be compared to one to three days of gonadal dose a person would receive from the background radiation. It entails a theoretical risk of very low magnitude.
