Dr Mark Baerlocher, a Canadian radiologist, teamed up with his software coding brother who runs Tidal Pool Software (Victoria, British Columbia) to create an iPhone application to estimate one’s overall exposure to radiation from typically known sources, like X-ray machines and CT scans. The three dollar app consolidates numbers from information entered about one’s lifestyle and medical tests taken, and provides exposure and risk numbers.
