  Title Commentary: A rebuttal to chiropractic radiologists’ view of the 50 year old, linear-no-threshold radiation risk model
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 2006 Sep;50(3):172-181
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes This discussion is in response to a letter-to-the editor in the form of a ‘Commentary’ by Bussieres, Ammendolia, Peterson, and Taylor concerning our original commentary: ‘On “phantom risks” associated with diagnostic ionizing radiation: evidence in support of revising radiography standards and regulations in chiropractic, published in the December 2005 issue of this journal.
Bussieres et al. have expressed that our original commentary lacked credibility, while they claimed that:
1) we have a vested financial interest in promoting routine and follow-up x-rays;
2) we provided a biased and unscientific evaluation of the evidence;
3) there is “no convincing evidence that the use of radiography for spinal biomechanical assessment (other than for scoliosis) is of any therapeutic value”; and
4) ‘unnecessary’ x-rays are associated with high health care costs.
