A 32-year-old male asked:

Is it ok to take chest and nasopharynx x-ray for a baby? is there any concern due to radiation in the future?

The radiation exposure is quite minimal, but the reason for the Nasal x ray should be clarified. An evaluation with a scope is often helpful. Please describe the symptoms for additional response.
